Ground Report | New Delhi: Strongest armies in the world; Army Day is celebrated on January 15 every year in India. January 15 marks the day that Field Marshal KM Cariappa (then a Lieutenant General) took over command of the Indian Army from British General Sir Francis Butcher, the last British Commander-in-Chief of India in 1949.
Army Day is observed to salute the brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives to protect the country and its citizens. Many events are organized across India to celebrate this special occasion along with the Army Day Parade at Cariappa Parade Ground.
