Pune: The Department of Sainik Welfare, Maharashtra, will honour families of soldiers, martyred in the Indo-Pak War of 1965, at the Ganesh Kala Krida Manch on January 25.


The programme has been organised to commemorate the golden jubilee year of the war.

The honours seek to underline the vital contribution of family members who supported and encouraged these brave men to do their best for their Motherland.

Colonel Suhas Jatkar (retd), director of the department, said, "It has been 50 years since India first demonstrated its military capability and ability to protect its frontiers. The Indian army, without doubt, did a tremendous job in upholding our national honour. This programme will be a reminder to India and its citizens of how much they owe to the men in olive green."

The Department of Sainik Welfare looks after war widows/war disabled soldiers, their families and ex-servicemen. "We need more funds to carry out meaningful rehabilitation and welfare activities. We hope patriotic and conscious citizens will help us out in whichever way they can," said Colonel Jatkar.
