This year, Armed Forces Day is on Saturday 30th June. It’s a day when we remember the contribution made to our country by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and show our support for the men and women who make up the armed forces community.
What’s happening on the day?
The national celebrations, taking place in Portsmouth, include a parade through the city with troops from all three services, military bands and veterans of all ages.
Other events are planned all around the country. From family fun days, golf tournaments black tie dinners, there are plenty of ways to celebrate. Find out what’s going on near you by visiting the Armed Forces Day website.
Supporting the Armed Forces
We’re reminded when we watch the news of the sacrifices people are making in the name of their country right now. Show you’re support by making a donation to a charity that supports the armed forces and their families.
