The Armed forces
The Armed Forces defend the UK and its interests. They are busy working all around the world promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism.
A veteran is anyone who has served in HM Armed Forces at any time(Including national servicemen regulars and reserves).This day forces day celebrates their continued role within the military community.
Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the reserve forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that, should their country require them , they would be ready to serve.
The cadets forces (sea cadets, army cadets, air cadets and the combined cadets) currently, support over 130,000 young people in more than 3000 locations across locations across the UK. Cadets learn life and career building skills as well as gaining vocational qualifications.
