A tribute was paid to the martyrs at a solemn ceremony at 'Prerna Sthal' in the military station to mark the Raising Day of the seventh and youngest command of the Army, a defence spokesperson said.
Army Commander Lt Gen Abhay Krishna and other serving and retired officers of the station laid wreaths at the ceremony.
Lt Gen Krishna recalled the supreme sacrifice made by the martyrs and exhorted all ranks to be forever steadfast in their resolve to meet the myriad security challenges confronting the nation.
In addition to its primary role of operational preparedness, the Western command has contributed to environmental protection, national integration, welfare of veterans and women and various empowerment projects and sports.
