New Delhi: The National War Memorial (NWM) will celebrate its third anniversary on February 25.

To mark the occasion, Chief of Integrated Defence Staff to the Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee (CISC) Air Marshal BR Krishna along with the Vice Chiefs of Indian Army, Indian Navy, and Indian Air Force will lay a wreath at the NWM and pay homage to the fallen bravehearts of the nation.

The evening will conclude with the Next-of-Kin (NoK) ceremony, during which NoK of a fallen hero will lay a wreath at the Memorial, remembering the supreme sacrifice made by the soldier.

It may be recalled that the initiative to have school bands to perform at the NWM was taken with the objective of inculcating the values of patriotism, devotion to duty, courage and sacrifice among the school children and increasing the participation of people, especially the youth so that they experience the various facets associated with the iconic war memorial.

The first school band to perform at the NWM on February 23 was Shri Thakurdwara Balika Vidyalaya, Ghaziabad. The NoK ceremony, which was suspended due to COVID-19, also resumed on February 23.

The NWM was dedicated to the nation by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 25, 2019. It stands testimony to the sacrifices made by the gallant soldiers since Independence.

The monument houses the eternal flame which exemplifies the supreme sacrifice made by a soldier in the line of duty thus making him immortal. Since its inauguration, all homage ceremonies are conducted only at the NWM, including those on National Days.
