UN Day is time to reflect for Baron

Bermuda observes the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers tomorrow — a time of quiet reflection for Junior National Security Minister Jeff Baron.

Senator Baron said he wasn’t the only Bermudian to have contributed to peacekeeping operations.

Since his return from 18 months in Kosovo five years ago, Sen Baron said, “I’ve been made aware that there are other Bermudians who have served on peacekeeping missions with the UN and the EU”.

Sen Baron said he used the peacekeepers’ commemoration to call and e-mail former colleagues from his time as a weapons instructor and field security supervisor for the UN mission to Kosovo.

“Those lessons in leadership will always influence the way I approach life here in Bermuda,” he added.

May 29 is set aside in memory of peacekeepers who lost their lives in the service, as well as men and women who have served.
