Major Milan Tepic ordered all his soldiers to retreat to a safe distance since the Major himself was going to blow up the weapons depot when the terrorist-Ustasa get close enough preventing the terrorists to get their hands on all that ammo. (170 ton)
The conscript Stojadin “Cole” Mirkovic refused to obey orders and stayed to defend the Major to the end when he was hit by an antitank grenade.
“- That’s simply how he was raised. He gave his life for this country. Says the mother of Stojadin.”
-I will never forget that day when we heard on television that the depot in Bjelovar Army-base was blown up, said a tearful mother Anica. - I immediately knew that Cole was killed - said Anica. - Something told me that the worst happened.
- Cole was buried in the cemetery near Bjelovar, a full four years we waited for his remains from Croatia - Anica says. - It was like an eternity. Dr. Zoran Stankovic, VMA then performed the autopsy and analysis, unfortunately, confirmed our dark premonitions.
- We are in contact with the family of the late Major MilanTepić, his wife and children visit us every year - says Anica. - Sometimes, Stojadin comrades in the army from Valjevo, Belgrade, Nis also visit us... On the twenty-year memorial service I was surprised how many people were on his grave. Even after two decades the memory has not faded of our “Cole”...
Some stone-cold FACTS
The army barracks in Bjelovar and the Bedenik weapons depot was a property of Jugoslavia and the Jugoslav National Army, consisting of officers and conscripts from all parts of Jugoslavia (Macedonia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Serbia, Monte Negro and from Croatia). Whatever the war propaganda and the fascist Ustasa-Croats are trying to produce as justifications, the FACTS are still very simple, and those are: JNA (Jugoslav National Army) Was an army of the existing country of Jugoslavia and its conscripts were Jugoslavs. It was NOT any Serbian army. The Weapons depot Bedenik was in JUGOSLAVIA and NOT in any other country. Further on, this is happening in September 29 and in the year of 1991 (Stojadin Dies Sep 29) To compare when the Separatists in Zagreb proclaimed their illegal independence from Belgrade which was October 8, 1991. And Croatian Separatists were shamefully recognized by Germany and Vatican on January 15 1992. And USA recognized the seperatists in April 1992.
These are all simple FACTS, and when this weapons depot was attacked by the Ustasa terrorists, it was attacked by JUST THAT a bunch of terrorists. Because at the time traveling around the world was possible for Jugoslav citizens with a JUGOSLAV Passport. There was no other country in this area then and thus no other passports.
The conscripts in the Army base of Bjelovar did NOT run around shooting in the city of Bjelovar, they were where they were supposed to be. And a bunch of murderous, criminal terrorists were attacking the property of JUGOSLAVIA and its people. NOT the other way around.
