Aleksandra's Note: On October 25, 2010, Lt. Col. Milton Friend (USAF, ret.) and his wife Shirley embarked on a very important trip overseas to Serbia. It would turn out to be the trip of a lifetime and the first time Milton Friend was returning to Serbia since World War Two! The main objective of the visit to Serbia was for Halyard Mission veteran Lt. Col. Milton Friend to testify at the October 29th hearing in Belgrade regarding the Rehabilitation of General Draza Mihailovich. Following this note you will find a photo essay courtesy of Milton and Shirley Friend of this very special visit to Serbia, which included a visit with the Serbian Royal Family at the White Palace in Belgrade and a trip to Ravna Gora.
On October 29, 2010, Milton Friend attended one of the first in a long series of Mihailovich Rehabilitation hearings that continue to this day, two and a half years later. Milton continues to wait patiently for the resolution, which he hopes and prays will be a resolution that satisfies the demands of justice and honor. It is my sincere hope that Lt. Col. Milton Friend lives to see the day that General Mihailovich is officially "rehabilitated" in his beloved homeland of Serbia, but regardless of what the Belgrade court decides, Milton knows exactly who General Mihailovich and his Chetniks were.
