The year 2008 is drawing to a close.
It was a year of many sacrifices, accomplishments and failures for all arms of the Sri Lankan Defence Forces. The SLAF was partner to the significant and milestone accomplishments achieved by the Sri Lankan state in its battle against virulent terrorism.
The SLAF's contributions caused unquantifiable and massive damage to the world's most ruthless terror organization. During this period, its warriors proved repeatedly that they are more skilled than most of their compatriots abroad, who fly more sophisticated equipment, yet accomplish less.
Here's a brief salute to our brave men and women who safe-guard Sri Lankan skies from those who would harm us.
