Wigan Armed Forces Day 2014
Wigan Town centre was packed on Saturday to witness Armed Forces Day. People up and down the country gathered to recognise, remember and pay tribute to the sacrifices made by the British Armed Forces community. Our Service personnel work around the world in some of the most dangerous situations to defend Britain’s interests and national security. Just like those before them, they do so with unequivocal commitment, enduring professionalism and resolute courage. But the sacrifice associated with military life is rarely endured alone – we must not forget the impact on the friends and families of those who serve too. They provide invaluable support to loved ones away from home and the contribution they make to local communities should never be underestimated.
