Meet The Forces Day - Cardiff
Two of our Wales Homes for Veterans team took part in the ‘Meet the Forces Day’ at Cardiff Bay on the 7th September. The event which immediately followed the NATO summit in Cardiff gave people the chance to hear about what the Armed Forces do, and let them see some of the equipment used.
Over 50,000 people attended the event and our team even had the pleasure of meeting the Secretary of State for Wales, Stephen Crabb who popped along to our Wales Homes for Veterans display to learn more about how we support our Armed Forces Veterans. During the event, the Secretary of State explained what the day was all about;
"Meet the Forces’ day is an opportunity for we, as the public, to come along, show our support and learn more about what it means to be on the front-lines. This NATO Summit and the very serious threats it has considered has brought home the huge debt of gratitude we owe to our Armed Forces."
