Definition, Cause and Purpose

The International Federation of Mountain Soldiers (IFMS) is an union of officially recognized legal associations consolidated in federative form of both former and now active soldiers of mountain troops of free-world countries, regardless on which side they stood during time of war.

Cause for the consolidation is the consciousness of the solidarity through the love of mountains, through the pride of achieved military and alpine efforts and through the comradeship especially marked in mountain troops.

Purpose of the consolidation is to promote understanding between the member associations for peace, freedom and human rights.
