Summary
Armed Forces Day is a chance to show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June.

Armed Forces Day celebrations begin on Monday before when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country.

Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much-valued morale boost for the troops and their families.

The UK Armed Forces defend the UK and its interests. They are busy working around the world, promoting peace, delivering aid, tackling drug smugglers, providing security and fighting terrorism.
