Samantha Cristoforetti’s version: “Away from the Air Force for disagreements”

It’s official, Samantha Cristoforetti she took leave of the Air Force. The formalities were dealt with at the base of the 51st flock of Istrana (Treviso), to which it belonged, but the astronaut used Twitter to explain his reasons. “I had the opportunity to express to the Armed Force, in the appropriate forums, my disagreement regarding some situations – he writes in a post – and at the same time, I considered for consistency and for my serenity to say goodbye”. And he continues: “In mutual frankness and without any controversy”.

The first Italian woman to go to space, remained for 199 consecutive days in the ISS international space station, AstroSamantha (so on her Twitter profile) showed up at nine this morning at the entrance to the Treviso facility, where she stayed for no more than 20 minutes.
The commander, colonel Maximum Easter, handed her the Department symbol and accompanied her to salute the flag. A procedure, it was explained, provided for in each case of leave or transfer of soldiers belonging to the flock. Cristoforetti had operated in the Istrana base until about fifteen years ago as an Amx aircraft pilot.

“Thanks to Samantha Cristoforetti for her service to Italy,” Defense Minister Lorenzo Guerini writes in a note after Captain Cristoforetti hailed the War Flag of his department, the 51st Wing. “Today he leaves the big Defense family but will always be a resource for the country. Thanks for the work he has done in over 18 years of service and for giving prestige to the Tricolor that represents us; We are sure that he will continue to do more and more in the coming years for Italy “.

“To all the women and men of the Air Force and the Armed Forces my thanks, as an Italian citizen, for the service they provide to the country. I was proud to have been a colleague of yours”, concludes Samantha in her tweet from farewell to Arms.

“The Republic will always fight in defense of freedom of information, for its readers and for all those who care about the principles of democracy and civil coexistence”
