Armed Forces Day

Armed Forces Day 3

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones joined millions of people in marking Armed Forces Day last weekend.

Armed Forces Day has been hugely successful since its launch in 2006. It is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution made by those who serve and have served in the Armed Forces and it is about saying thank you to our Armed Forces for the work they do.

Mr Jones said “The role played by the armed forces cannot be quantified. They protect our security and defend our freedoms and way of life. Armed Forces Day is an opportunity for us all to show our appreciation and to recognise the professionalism, commitment and sacrifice our men and women of the forces make and have made to protect the freedoms we all enjoy”.
