The period between 1997 and 1999 represented the final -- and most dynamic -- stage in Romania's bid for NATO membership. Being the first country who signed the Partnership for Peace back in 1994, Romania embarked on a long process of political and military transformation in order to meet NATO's criteria for membership. The event that improved Romania's visibility as a viable partner and future member of the alliance was NATO's 50th Anniversary Summit in Washington, DC, in April 1999. The article below consists in the recollections of one of the very few Romanian officers who participated to this historic summit.
