The Defense Forces of Georgia (Georgian pronunciation: sakartvelos tavdacvis z’alebi; romanized as sakartvelos tavdatsvis dzalebi) or Georgian Defense Forces are the combined military forces of Georgia. They are charged with protecting the nation's sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity. They include the Air Force, Air Force and National Guard as well as Special Operations Forces. The Chief of Defense Forces is the chief of these forces and they are directly under the overall direction of the Minister for Defense of Georgia. In 1918, the first Georgian Republic established a regular military.



It remained in existence until the fall of the Soviet Russian forces in 1921. The government of Georgia established the modern Georgian military in accordance to the 24 April 1991 decree. The day that the first conscripts were called for military service in 1991 is celebrated as the Day of the Georgian Military Forces. Georgia was among the first Soviet republics to sign up for the NATO Partnership for Peace in 1994 and Individual Partnership Action Plan in 2004. It has been working to align its military with NATO standards.
