    Military Veterans Day

    The sacrifices by the Armed Forces, on both sides, we will have to endure forever, the glaring testimony of soldiers that paid the highest price in the battle for the freedom we enjoy today.

    The SA Defence Forces Military Veterans Day is held annually on Heritage Day, September 24.
    On this day we create the opportunity to socialise and renew our camaraderie as well as for our Sector’s Units to compete nationally in activities that connect the youth years of the veterans with those experienced during the war.
    Namely “Kettie Skiet” and training hand grenade throwing.
    It also provides an opportunity to engage community members in our vision of a better South Africa.
    The assigned designation for this Military Veterans day is “Ops. Jag Arend”
    The Republic of South Africa has a rich history, although interwoven, a very poignant past with copious heart rendering episodes of bloodshed.
    The sacrifices by the Armed Forces, on both sides, we will have to endure forever, the glaring testimony of soldiers that paid the highest price in the battle for the freedom we enjoy today.
    It is consequently appropriate to employ Heritage Day to remember those that went before us.
    Let’s honour our fellow soldiers of the all the Armed Forces that took part in this war and did not return from the blood-soaked battle fields. Those that did return but forever suffering with physical and pshycological scars, by dedicating Heritage Day to them.
    The Armed Forces’ veterans of the SADFA, will be hosting, on Heritage Day, the notorious “two comma four” run, at Lake Umuzi on 24 September.
    What better way to remember the training, hardship, camaraderie and Esprit de Core between fellow soldiers, with a run that is engraved in our memory of days past?
    Come and enjoy the two-comma-four with us! – Aart Reedijk
