Saluting the armed forces

My MSP colleague Jim Tolson and I joined Terry Fowler from the Royal British Legion to officially raise the special Armed Forces Day flag at the City Chambers in Dunfermline today.

Armed Forces Day is an opportunity to salute the men and women of our armed forces both present and past.

Thanks to many factors including the war in Iraq there has been a fear that the reputation of our armed forces has suffered. Hence the reason that Labour established the special day.

Yet I think the reputation of the armed forces remains strong and it is the Labour Government that people clearly hold responsible for the war.
