The impeccable Military Parade 2022, which took place this Monday at Parque O’Higgins, will be remembered for some crucial moments. One of them became a trend on Twitter: the Commander General of the Army Garrison of the Metropolitan Region and Chief of the Presentation Forces, General Cristián Vial Maceratta.
The Brigadier General was in charge of asking President Boric for authorization to hold the traditional parade.
The uniformed man approached on horseback, at a slow pace, with a fixed and penetrating gaze. The image was viralized on social networks under the so-called “We will never forget the general’s look.”
Vial Maceratta is a General Staff Officer, military pilot, paratrooper, military professor, academy professor, military interpreter translator (English), Master of Strategic Planning, Army War Academy and Master of Strategic Studies, Army War College, USA.
