Having thanked for the awarded recognition, Genral Jevtić addressed the attendees to this occasion saying: ‘’Your Holiness, Your Eminence, dear guests, colleagues, I am well aware of the time we are living in and deeply convinced that the present occasion represents one of the historical  events that would  mark the present moment as well as the time that would come. Our Military and the Church have always been in the service of Serbian people, what has practically been confirmed here, in this temple of Serbian medicine, and, on the basis of which, conditions for strengthening physical and spiritual health of our people are created. As a man of the people and in the service of people, I am deeply devoted to sanctities that determine my life, and they are my family, the Military, Mother Church and our Military Medical Academy. I would like to congratulate His Holiness, the Serbian Patriarch Pavle on his Krsna Slava   wishing him to live a long life and wishing the God would protect us from the evils of injustice and keep us from all dangers and misfortunes that strike our people. This recognition is very precious to me for it is my dearest recognition I’ve been awarded with so far and it is a proof that all my previous work aimed at safeguarding national values has been recognized by our church and public, what gives me an incentive not to slacken  and strength to  continue going in the same direction’’.
