Remembering Our Comrades

Remembering Our Comrades.

Being a Soldier is a matter of immense pride and it also provides one the opportunity to serve with one’s comrades at various cantonments all over Pakistan in peace time, and at the borders during the combat. Pakistan Army is like a very big family where a soldier spends the prime time of his/her life with the colleagues and comrades. This Post is dedicated to those comrades who have left us and proceeded to their heavenly abodes. Very fine articles have been written by Pakistan Armed Forces officers in the loving memory of their friends and comrades
