This article examines and analyzes how the military identities of the new states (SFRY, FRY, SCG and RS) were created on the example of a representative military facility – the Army Headquarters building. The dissolution of the state and the creation of new states also destroyed the identity of the Army Headquarters as a federal military facility. The last damage to the military identity of the Headquarters occurred during the 1999 NATO bombing, when on two occasions, in the course of April and May, a small part of the building was demolished and therefore became unusable for its basic “military” use. However, a part remained in use and, as such, survived as a represent of the FRY/SCG community. Today, when Serbia is trying to build a new military identity, the authorities are trying to give the Army Headquarters building, which once represented connections with previous states and is now politically useless, a new role yet to be defined.
