The Salvator Association of Oldenburg (SGO) (“Salvator” [Latin for `saviour`] is the brand name of a particularly strong beer served during Lent.) was proud to welcome a very special guest of honour at this year`s Salvator meeting: Dr. Ursula von der Leyen, the Federal Minister of Defence. More than 320 guests filled the banqueting hall listening to 30 minutes of opening remarks by Dr. von der Leyen, covering the full range of good and evil of the Bundeswehr’s present situation. After dining on roast knuckles, there was plenty of space and time for rewarding conversations and social contacts. View the pictures on page 4 of the photo gallery (“Salvatorabend 2019”).
