Ionia Monument
One small in volume but large in strength and memory monument.
The Ionia Monument is a small tribute to our people - the 1,500,000 people - who were left behind and lost, but also to all the refugees who, after their persecution, settled in Greece, in particular, in the refugee settlement of the region of Voula.
The Ionia Monument is the memorial to the genocide of the Greeks of Asia Minor by the Turkish state that annihilated hundreds of thousands of our ancestors. It is the memorial of the atrocities committed by the New Turks, culminating in the burning of Smyrna on September 14, '22. It is the memorial of the eradication of the first inhabitants of Voula from their eternal homes, from the soils where they have grown for thousands of years with their remarkable culture. Those people who, with their honest sweat, managed to stand on their feet, in their new homeland, but also to offer many and marvelous in its progress.
Every year in mid-September, a memorial service is held for the victims of the Asia Minor disaster at the Church of Saint John Voula and a wreath is laid at the Ionia monument.

Monument of Greek Commandos

The first memorial took place in Kavouri, which was the first Commando's Training Center and it was for the commandos fallen. It was held on 1 September 1950, one year after the end of the civil war.
The General Kallinskis, founder of the Command Units, was the one who spoke at LOK's first memorial. He briefly narrated at that time, with fresh events of the battles, all the actions of the Companies.
"All the highest peaks of the mountains of Greece, Parnassos, Oiti, Giona, Othry and Pelion, with their feathered legs, fell!" Agrafa and Pindos, Parnonas, Taygetos! -Olympus and the glorified Souli! And on top of the border is Ali-Butous and Kaimaktsalan! "
On March 30, 1953, the LOK monument was unveiled in Kavouri, Vouliagmeni, with the presence of the royal couple, former Prime Minister Alexandros Papagos and of course the monumental enthusiast, General Kallinsky. The unveiling was presented by the media of the time and the scenes of the unveiling were memorized in a top-rated film. The LOK images fill with intense feelings the film's viewers, especially if they belong to the family of special forces. It is a top-down film among many but very important for the history of Command and Special Forces in general. Watch the relevant video
