Croatian Army to Send Out Call-Ups Again – 20,000 Reserves Wanted

CroatiaThe Croatian Defence Force is looking to beef up its military reserves in Croatia, and will begin by sending out call-ups to men in the Osijek and Dubrovnik region, reports daily Vecernji list

The goal, which will see around 700 army call-up letters sent to addresses in Dubrovnik and Osijek, is to build up Croatia’s military reserves to 20,000 people.

“Call-up letters will be sent to between 600 and 700 addresses in both regions (Osijek and Dubrovnik) which are along the country’s border. We are doing a trial and I am interested to see how many responses we get,” said Defence Minister Ante Kotromanović, adding that he envisaged the establishment of six or seven infantry regiments.

“It does not mean that those people on the list will constantly be mobilised reserves, but if needed, there must be a certain number of people who know how to hold a gun in their hands,” says Kotromanović.
