"On the day, which is observed ahead of UAE's 50th National Day, we proudly recall the stories of loyalty, sacrifice and redemption of the valiant officers and soldiers of our armed forces, and we assure them of our loyalty to their precious memory by continuing hard work, promoting development in all fields, and preserving achievements to create a better future for our coming generations."
