To mark Armed Forces Day on Saturday 25 June 2022, Alan Campbell MP for Tynemouth has thanked our UK Armed Forces for their crucial role in defending our communities at home and abroad.
Alan Campbell highlighted that from deployments abroad in response to the invasion of Ukraine to deployments at home during the COVID 19 pandemic, our Armed Forces are essential to our national defence, our national resilience and our national NATO obligations.
Armed Forces Day is held each year on the last Saturday of June to celebrate the service and sacrifice of our UK Armed Forces, veterans, and their families.
Alan said “On Armed Forces Day, Labour backs and thanks our Armed Forces. I am deeply proud of our servicemen and women – and theirs is the ultimate public service.
“Our Armed Forces play a crucial role in defending our communities at home and abroad. They showed total professionalism with their support in Tynemouth during the pandemic and continue to play a crucial role in defending the UK and our NATO allies from Russian aggression.”
