The International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers is 29 May. All of us at the Peace Operations Training Institute recognize the sacrifice and service of the more than 115,000 individuals who wear the blue helmet of UN Peacekeeping while serving in some of the world's most dangerous and turbulent regions. Our prayers and thoughts are with the 111 men and women, and their loved ones, who lost their lives in the service of peace during 2012.

We extend hearty thank yous for all you do in the service of peace.
