Message from the Governor General and Commander-in-Chief of Canada, on the Occasion of the Canadian Armed Forces Day

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 1, 2014) - Canadian Armed Forces Day offers us an opportunity to thank the soldiers, sailors, airmen and airwomen of our military for their service and dedication to Canada.

As Canadians, we are fortunate to be able to count on our armed forces throughout the year. Whether deployed domestically in support of relief or rescue efforts or in missions abroad, the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces make an invaluable contribution to our shared well-being. The core values of duty, loyalty, integrity and courage that underlie the efforts of our military can also serve as examples for all Canadians.

As commander-in-chief, I am proud to wear a military uniform. On this important day, I would like to offer my respect and appreciation to all those Canadian Armed Forces members who so capably serve our country.

David Johnston
