Since its establishment, the Hellenic Military School of Combat Support Officers has stood as the epitome of excellence, serving as the juncture where military education converges with scientific training. Graduates from this institution emerge as Officers, well-versed in both military and academic disciplines, entrusted with the responsibilities of leading Combat Support Services.
The overarching mission of this esteemed institution revolves around imparting a harmonious blend of scientific and military education, cultivating Officers who are not only cognizant of their roles but also embody a spirit of fairness and cooperation. The overarching objective is to fulfill the needs of the Armed Forces across three pivotal domains:
Health: This encompasses the education of doctors, veterinarians, dentists, pharmacists, and psychologists, all of whom play crucial roles in supporting the well-being of military personnel.
Financial: The School equips individuals with the financial acumen required to manage and steward the resources essential for the functioning of the Armed Forces.
Military Legal Advisers: Training individuals in the legal intricacies of military operations, ensuring the adherence to legal norms in the execution of military duties.
The School serves as a bastion of virtue and discipline, molding its students into not just military practitioners but also instilling in them a deep-rooted understanding of military principles and values. Through a collaborative partnership with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, it supplements this military education with scientific knowledge, thereby preparing its graduates to confront the multifaceted challenges of modern military life within an ever-evolving international context.
The emblem of the School aptly symbolizes the dual role of a scientific officer. The glaux, as the sacred bird of the goddess Athena, represents wisdom and science. Supported by two spears, it symbolizes the wisdom that watches over weaponry, embodied in the School’s motto ‘Πειθαρχία Μήτηρ Ευπραξίας,’ which extols the virtues of discipline as the mother of righteous action and achievement. Discipline, as the driving force behind all that is virtuous, serves as the cornerstone of the Hellenic Military School of Combat Support Officers.
The fame and progress of the School have transcended national borders, thanks to its international collaborations and programs, as well as its role in educating foreign students who subsequently carry the torch of Greek education to their respective countries.
With unwavering confidence, it can be stated that the School will persist in furnishing the Hellenic Armed Forces with Officers who are well-prepared to effectively counter the challenges posed by the ever-evolving operational landscape and the realm of science. In doing so, it not only ensures the security and support of the Officers and Units/Services of the Armed Forces but also extends its reach to benefit the Greek populace at large.
