Armed Forces Day held in June is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. 

Across the length and breadth of the country people come together to salute our armed forces in various forms of events and parades, an opportunity to pay tribute to those that serve and have served in our armed forces.  

An event in the Senedd leading up to Armed Forces Day provided Members and staff a chance to also join in and mark the event.  

Armed Forces Day is a fitting tribute to our fantastic armed forces and should continue to be supported now and in the future. The organisers of the host of events taking place across Wales and the UK should also be recognised for the hard work they contribute. 

Armed Forces Day this year was held on Saturday 24th June 2017.
