Appreciating personnel on Warrior’s Day

Date:

KANOWIT: The state level Warrior’s Day celebration is not only to commemorate the nation’s fallen heroes but also to give encouragement to the personnel who are still serving the country.

According to Sarawak Public Communication Unit (UKAS) news report, Kanowit MP Datuk Aaron Ago Dagang said encouragement must also be given to the current serving personnel protecting the sovereignty of the country as well as the frontliners’ successes in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“For two years, we could not celebrate this day physically due to COVID-19 pandemic but today finally we can hold it for Kanowit district level.

“In Sarawak there are three warrior monuments located in Kuching, Lundu and Kanowit and we are fortunate to have a monument here for Warrior’s Day to be celebrated every year,” he said during the celebration at the Fort Emma recently.

Meanwhile, Aaron also touched on the Rajang Area Security Command (RASCOM) which was established in 1972 due to several incidents of murder, chaos and destruction of public properties in the Third Division by the North Kalimantan Communist Party (PPKU).

He said that as the elected representative of the people, he had already requested for detail planning for this area to be developed and formulated an action plan which had been agreed upon by Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

Meanwhile the organising chairman representing the Sarawak Veterans Association of Malaysian Armed Forces  (PVTMS) and the Kanowit Ex-Royal Malaysia Police Association, Juat Jagok called on his special community to appreciate the sacrifices made by previous warriors.

“The prosperity, peace and security that we are enjoying now do not come by themselves, these are all the consequences of the sacrifices of the heroes of this country that we hold in high esteem,” he said.
