Trade Union: Ministry Gives Little Attention to Soldiers on Bosnia Mission

Jan Kleian, chairman of the military trade union ACOM, claims that the Ministry of Defense does not give enough attention to the preparation of Dutch military personnel going to serve in Bosnia. They sometimes receive notice only at the last minute that they have to go abroad, get insufficient preparation and, at their posting there is sometimes insufficient medical care. In addition, the care they receive after they return to the Netherlands is poorly organized.
