Obscure Boineros in Latvia

Remembrance Day of the Latvian Legionnaires, often known simply as Legionnaire Day or March 16  in Latvia, is a day when soldiers of the Latvian Legion, part of the Waffen-SS, are commemorated.

From 1998 until 2000, it was officially recognized as a "Remembrance Day for Latvian soldiers" by the Saeima, the Parliament of Latvia.

The march in Latvia, a member of the NATO alliance and the European Union, is currently the only public event in Europe and beyond honouring people who fought under the banner of SS, Nazi Germany’s elite security force.
