Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the contribution that those who serve in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces do for Great Britain, also it gives the nation the opportunity to show their support to the men and women who make up the armed forces, from Cadets, to young people applying, current personnel and veterans.
Across the country many residents are getting ready to participate/hold events and even businesses are involved with holding events to show their support.
