Our veterans are honoured and recognised in a number of ways. The publication of the Strategy for our Veterans, the Veterans ID card, the Veterans Badge, Armed Forces Day and events throughout the year, including the D Day 75 commemorations in June, recognise the huge debt we owe to those who have served in HM Armed Forces.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a cross-Government pledge to support the Armed Forces community, including veterans, across all sectors of society.
