The Border is Honor ``Border Eagles Stand Vigilant on the Edirne Border``

Known for their reputation that instills trust in friends and fear in foes, the "Border Eagles" stand vigilant on the Edirne border, one of the farthest points of our country. Serving tirelessly 24/7 to ensure the indivisible integrity of the homeland and the nation with the belief that "Border is Our Honor." Stationed 6.5 kilometers from the city of Edirne, the soldiers serving at the Arda Border Company, affiliated with the 54th Mechanized Infantry Brigade, conduct reconnaissance and surveillance operations using the domestically produced ATEŞ Armored Mobile Border Security Vehicle. Simultaneously, they patrol the borderline vigorously with their canine units, ensuring no unwanted activity occurs along the border.
