(Falklands) War is Over

From the BBC:

14 June 2012

Falkland Islands marks the end of 1982 war with Argentina

The Falkland Islands will mark 30 years since the end of the war with Argentina later, with services at Port Stanley's cathedral and Liberation Monument.

Britain liberated the UK territory from Argentine occupation on 14 June 1982.

David Cameron issued a message saying Britain's support for the islands had "not wavered in the last 30 years and it will not in the years ahead".

Argentine President Cristina Fernandez has demanded talks on the islands' future through adverts in the UK press.

The liberation of the islands after 74 days of Argentine occupation will be marked with a service of thanksgiving at Christ Church Cathedral in the Falklands capital, Port Stanley.

Veterans of the 1982 war will then lead a military parade to the Liberation Monument for an act of remembrance....

We lost 255 British Military as they defended the sovereignty of the Falklands. Read more - check out the links - here, and remember and honour them all.
