Embrace Remembrance Day : Aruma

The National Remembrance Day is more than just a public holiday and as such must continue to be observed in honor of our forefathers who have served the country.

Commanding Officer of the First Royal Pacific Islands Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Boniface Aruma says while this year marks the 38th commemoration, the legacy of the fallen still lingers.

And for their service, they must never be forgotten, says Aruma.

“We must learn to embrace this day, like how the Australians and New Zealanders treasure ANZAC day.”

“While we join in ANZAC celebrations, the 23th of July is our day and must be seen as more than just a public holiday,” says the commanding officer.

While the Taurama Barracks staged its dawn services to commemorate the day, a ceremony was also held at the Murray Barracks while the National Remembrance Day Ceremony is currently underway at the Remembrance Park, Ela Beach.

This year’s theme is ‘Their Legacy, Our Inspiration.’
Currently in attendance is the Governor General Sir Bob Dadae, Acting Prime Minister Davis Steven, Heads of the Disciplinary Forces, Members of the Diplomatic Corps and others.  FM100/PNG Today
