Assembly member Joyce Watson is supporting Armed Forces day, showing gratitude to the men and women who serve and have served in the Armed Forces.
The Labour AM this week met with Welsh Government minister Carl Sargeant to discuss support for service personal, veterans and their families in Mid and West Wales.
Armed Forces Day is this Saturday, 25 June.
Mrs Watson will be joining people the length and breadth of the country who want to salute our Forces personnel. The organisers of this year’s event are asking people to show their support by tweeting with the hashtag #SaluteOurForces or by sharing pictures of support on the Armed Forces Day Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/armedforcesday. Details of events that are happening across the country can be found at www.armedforcesday.org.uk.
Joyce Watson AM said:
“Armed Forces day is a great opportunity to show support for our Armed Forces, to thank the men and women, past and present, that serve our country.”
Carl Sargeant, Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children, added:
“It is also an opportunity to say a huge thanks to those organisations that do such great work to help our armed forces and veterans. Groups like the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes and so many others.”
