Celebrating unity and gratitude: Armed Forces Day 2024  

Armed Forces Day is an annual national event that serves as a tribute to the men and women of the Armed Forces community. From active-duty personnel to veterans, from military families to cadets, this day is dedicated to honouring their courage, sacrifice, and unwavering commitment to protecting our nation’s security and upholding its values.  

Why is it important?  

Armed Forces Day is a symbol of national unity and gratitude. It allows communities nationwide to unite and express their support for those who serve and who have served. It’s a chance to recognise the sacrifices made by service members and their families and demonstrate solidarity and appreciation for their selfless dedication to duty.  

When is it?  

Armed Forces Day will be observed from 22 June to 7 July this year. During this period, various events and activities will take place nationwide to honour and celebrate the contributions of our Armed Forces community.
