It's an opportunity to do two things. Firstly, to raise public
awareness of the contribution made to our country by those who
serve and have served in Her Majesty's Armed Forces, Secondly, it
gives the nation an opportunity to Show Your Support for the men
and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently
serving troops to Service families and from veterans to cadets.
Across the country people are getting involved: communities hold
local events and business show their support.
The National Event will be held in Nottingham, but there are
many more events up and down the country being held in support of
Armed Forces Day.
If you want to know more about the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air
Force or meet members of local units, then why not attend an event
or hold one yourself?
