India Observed 6th Armed Forces Veterans Day 2022

India Observed 6th Armed Veterans Day

Since 2017, Indian Armed Forces Veterans Day is observed each year on 14th January. This date was selected because India’s first filed Marshall CM Carriappa, OBE retired on 14th January in 1953. Celebrating and Commemorating Indian Armed Forces Veterans Day acknowledges and honours the selfless service, devotion and sacrifice of our veterans in the service of the motherland.

On 12 Jan 2020, Indian Army Veterans organised the the parade for the first time in Bombay to commemorate Veteran’s day and to pay homage to the Martyrs who sacrificed their life for their nation. The aim of the parade was also to make public aware about the role and contribution of the Indian Armed Forces.

It is rightly said, ” We may have retired but we are not retired”. Once a Soldier Always a Soldier.
This year, the 6th  Armed Forces Veterans Day at Delhi will commence with a homage ceremony at the National War Memorial. Wreaths ceremony will be laid by CISC, serving three star officers as well as veteran officers and JCOs/NCOs from all three services.
