Today, the 15th of January 2019, is known as the Armed Forces Remembrance Day. It is a day to celebrate all fallen heroes that had died in the line of duty. It is celebrated annually on this date in Nigeria for the army, the navy and the air force. Our hearts go out to the troops sent out to war against insurgency in the North East due to activities of the Boko Haram terrorist group and the herdsmen killings.
Last year November, the President inaugurated 2019 Armed Forces Remembrance Emblem in preparation towards this day. He also approved an appeal fund of 10 million naira to support Nigerian veterans and fallen heroes. In honor of our fallen heroes, some activities will be held today. One of them is a parade at the National Arcade, Abuja. We at Public Faces celebrate our fallen heroes nationwide.
