  1. I love to celebrate and pay tribute to the wonderful men and women who serve and protect us. In the UK Armed Forces Day is the 30th of June. This past Saturday, during Prince Harry’s wedding, the number of forces working together (close to Harry’s heart) was astounding. Yes, there was the expected pomp of these affairs, but they were highly impressive and I feel great pride in the forces who represent us all across the world.
