National Armed Forces Day 2018

June 30, 2018 7:30 AM

Armed Forces DayToday, June 30, marks National Armed Forces Day and is a time to celebrate the fantastic contribution of our Armed Forces.

We will celebrate those who both currently and have previously served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and show support for all of those in the Armed Forces community.

Cllr James Wright said, "I believe it is very important to understand more about the day to day working of our Armed Forces personnel, and the issues and challenges they face - both whilst serving in uniform, and also when they leave active service and annually celebrate the huge contribution they make."

"I will be using the day to #SaluteOurForces to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe."

Here in Norwich, the Armed Forces Library @ The Forum is having an open day, which will consist of inside and outside displays by Veterans, Military Vehicles, Emergency Services. Elsewhere in Norfolk, there are other events being held to celebrate our troops, service families, veterans and cadets.
