In the week before Armed Forces Day, the Armed Forces Day team will be showcasing and celebrating the work of our Armed Forces across their Facebook and Twitter channels, beginning on Monday 22 June.
Across the Armed Forces Day channels, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from personnel deployed all over the world, get exclusive access behind the scenes with the latest military kit and more!
The team will of course be marking Armed Forces Day on Saturday 27 June and although we may not be together to mark it this year, there are many ways that you can join in and celebrate at home.
Here are just a few ideas for how to celebrate virtually on Saturday 27 June;
-Join the team on Facebook and Twitter throughout the day for a programme of online events including Q&As with military personnel, performances from military bands, exclusive behind the scenes access and more!
-Host a virtual celebration with friends and family via video chat – from virtual BBQs or picnics with friends online or even an Armed Forces themed quiz! Remember to share your photos with us by using #ArmedForcesDay on your posts.
-#SaluteOurForces is a simple way for anyone to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work, dedication and efforts to and keep us safe in the UK and across the globe. To join in, simply send in a photo or video of yourself or your friends and colleagues saluting! Find out how to submit your images HERE.
-If you know someone in the Armed Forces community whether they’re currently serving or a veteran, you could send them a message or give them a call to show your support for the work they do.
