MSP Joan McAlpine has paid tribute to the Armed Forces community ahead of Armed Forces Day. The SNP MSP attended a Flag Raising Event at the Tolbooth in Sanquhar at the invitation of Mid and Upper Nithsdale Community Council.
Ms McAlpine commented
“It was an honour to attend Monday’s flag raising event and I thank the community council for its warm invitation.
“Dumfries and Galloway as a region has a positive record in supporting veterans – and indeed is considered a leader in Scotland in terms of caring of retired service men and women.
“I am always pleased to be involved in the celebrations and tributes marking Armed Forces Day – it’s important to me to have an opportunity to recognise the work of those currently serving, as well as service families, veterans and those who so sadly have lost their lives.”
