It provides the community with an excellent opportunity to commemorate the sacrifices made by the UAE Armed Forces and teach all generations about the honour, patriotism and bravery that underpins military service.

The response inspired us to create the ‘Thank You Wall’ at the exhibition, where the community is joining us to commemorate the brave and noble men who have sacrificed their lives for our nation, and show their appreciation for those who continue to uphold the UAE’s values across the world today."
