President Mario Abdo Benitez awards medals to RMAS graduates from the 1993 to 2002 period.

RMAS is an elite institution, recognized worldwide as a leader in military training. Among the graduates are Paraguay nationals Officer Cadet Osvaldo Solís and the Officer Cadet Susy Carolina Benítez Giménez. Both Solís and Benítez Giménez are the first Paraguayan students at the Royal Academy after seventeen years, and Benitez Giménez is the first Paraguayan woman in its entire history.

New student for Class 2020

Cooperation in education and defence will continue with Paraguayan Cadet Matías González, who is already at RMAS and soon begins his studies for the period 2020/2021.

Ambassador Hedges and Deputy Head of Mission John Davie took part in a call with the Paraguayan students last Monday 10 August. During this call, Ambassador Hedges praised the dedication of both graduates and the new student, conveying his sincere congratulations to them.
