BDF marks 32 years

Social Share

A SENSE?OF?PRIDE filled the air yesterday as the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) gave a special salute to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart as it celebrated 32 years.
Following a church service at St Matthias Anglican Church in St Matthias, Christ Church, uniformed personnel made their way along Hastings Road to their base at St Ann’s Fort, The Garrison.
Prior to the salute and march, the Reverend David Tudor delivered the sermon to a packed congregation that included Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs Adriel Brathwaite.
Tudor said that the existence of armed forces was necessary 32 years ago and he believed they were “now more necessary than ever” because of the ills that were happening.
“Listening to the news bulletin, and a casual glance at the newspapers, will tell you that in every part of the world there is unrest.
“In every part of the world there is anxiety and uprising. Sometimes the causes are obvious and sometimes they are not,” he said. (MM)
