Families of martyred officials attended the ceremony and received the medals.

Addressing the ceremony, the Chief of Army Staff paid rich tributes to armed forces personnel, martyrs and their families for their sacrifices and saluted them for their gallantry and sacrifices made for the country.

Gen Bajwa said there could not be an alternative for those who sacrificed their lives but it is the duty of the country to look after their families.

Army chief hailed mothers of army personnel who willingly sacrificed their sons for defending the country’s soil. It's the Army that remained in service in the need of hour for people whether it is the security or helping the nation in hard times.
