Being a member of NATO does not protect you from anything. NATO can’t defend ANY of its members against a truly modern military.
Shortly after your promotion to the rank of a superintendent, back in August 2020, I noticed you off-duty near Casemates. Offering my congratulations to you seemed appropriate way back then. Even though we had never previously spoken to each other, I recall well the occasion of wishing you all the very best in your then new and important role.
