A gathering of about 1,500 serving and retired disabled War Heroes at the invitation of the Directorate of Veterans Affairs on Friday (17) at the Panagoda Army cantonment gymnasium were provided with a comprehensive account of the ongoing series of Army welfare projects, dedicated exclusively to them during a special meeting of high-ranking officers of relevant Directorates.

The meeting, attended by representative senior Army officers of the Directorate of Personnel Administration, Directorate of Welfare, Directorate of Pay and Records, had been organized by the Directorate of Veterans Affairs of the Army with the objective of providing an update on the string of welfare projects, being implemented for the best interest of those disabled War Heroes. Major General A.S De Z Wickramarathne, Adjutant General of the Army graced the occasion as the Chief Guest.

The interactive meeting, perhaps being the first of its kind in recent memory, opened the floor for all disabled attendees to find solutions, clarifications and required information as regards different issues that they were faced with since all those resource personnel upon specific inquiries, went directly to them and provided information etc. to them on the spot.

Organized on the guidelines given by the Commander of the Army, Lieutenant General Crishanthe De Silva, the program also opened a forum for them to freely interact with authoritative officers and have face-to-face interviews on matters of concern to them.
