Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June gives us all the opportunity to not only recognise the bravery of those who have served or are currently serving in the forces, but also to offer our support to the whole armed forces community - from serving troops to service families, reservists, veterans and cadets.
Armed Forces Day is the climax of a week-long celebration which began on Monday 22 June with the Armed Forces Day flag flying high on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. A celebration of our reserve forces will follow on Wednesday 24 June; and the national Armed Forces Day event in Guildford is still to come this Saturday.
The Department of Health fully supports Armed Forces Week and those who have been physically and mentally affected in the course of their duties. The health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant will continue to be supported, built upon and embedded at the heart of NHS England's constitution.
