Indian Army has declared the year 2018 as  the `Year of the Disabled Soldier in Line of Duty’. This was done so as to honour those brave soldiers, who despite sustaining serious injuries, served the country with undying spirit.

For the initiative of the Indian Army, Western Command conducted a series of outreach programs from July to November 2018 to connect with brave hearts including those residing in remote areas.

An Army official told MyNation that this event is organised with an aim to assure disabled soldiers of the commitment of the Indian Army towards them. “Over 500 disabled soldiers with their families from the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, UP, Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh are likely to attend the function. The event would also be graced by three Param Vir Chakra awardees and several eminent disabled soldiers,” he added.
