The country is celebrating its 72nd Army Day on Wednesday, 15 January 2020. In 1949, on this day itself, the then Lieutenant General KM Cariappa took over as Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Army in place of General Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief of India. That is why this day is celebrated as Indian Army Day.
Every Indian feels proud to be blessed with a strong army and celebrate the day by sending messages, wishes, greetings to their friends and family to mark the importance of the Indian Army.
If you have still not greeted your friends and family on the occasion of Indian Army Day, here are some wishes, quotes, images, cards and greetings for your conveyance.
Happy 72nd Indian Army Day!
We fight to win and win with a knock out,because there are no runners up in war.General JJ Singh
