#Politics: Gov hope applauded the military and assures Imolites of his service with the fear of God.
The military is a very essential part of any country. Their service is a priority and a great risk. It is made up of brave men and women, patriotic citizens who surrender their lives to fight and defend the sovereignty of the country.
However any country without the military is open to external aggression and can easily be defeated.
Whenever there is an invasion they are the first to feel it and still respond abruptly to the oppression. Most of them have families, husband and wives yet the put their life on the line to fight and defend the nation.
The military Remembrance Day is a day map out by the UN to celebrate fallen heroes, brave men and women, generals, captains etc who fought for their nation.
Moreover is praiseworthy to remember these men and women for their selfless service towards their nation. A lot of us can’t do it. It takes these men to make us sleep soundly in the night, go about our daily activities without fear and enjoy peace.
