‘The Queen of the Battle’ wins hearts of people
The Indian infantry is one of the most battle-hardened and combat-rich forces in the world. To commemorate the maiden gallant action of the force in the wake of the Independence and to pay befitting salutation to our soldiers, who have made the supreme sacrifices in the past, the Vajra Corps celebrated the 58th Infantry Day at the Vajra War Memorial here on Wednesday.
Major General B.J. Gupta, Chief of Staff, Vajra Corps, and Lt Gen S.S. Sangha
(retd) laid wreaths at the memorial and paid a tribute to the martyred
infantrymen of the state. Speaking on the occasion, Maj Gen Gupta said that
Indian infantrymen have earned the respect and admiration of their counterparts
the world over.
