Why is this Military Exercise Called “Ušće 2011”?

The military celebration is called Ušće after the urban neighborhood of Belgrade in the municipality of Novi Beograd where the miltiary exercise of the army’s Sretenje celebrations are held. Ušće is located on the mouth of the Sava river into the Danube, thus the name (ušće is Serbian for (river) mouth).
