Remembering all those who fought bravely for Greece
October 28, 2017PanHellenic Commemorates OXI Day
Shortly after 3:00am on October 28, 1940 the Italian ambassador to Greece presented Greek Prime Minster Ioannis Metaxas an ultimatum. Greece was to allow Axis forces to enter Greek territory and occupy strategic locations or otherwise face war. In true laconic fashion, Metaxas responded with OXI and Greece began a brave and glorious defense of the motherland.Let us remember all those who fought bravely and valiantly for Greece, on this 77th Anniversary of OXI DAY, October 28th. The courage and determination of a nation working together defeated the Axis powers, and freedom was once again restored in our homeland.
