To strengthen the bonds with the Veterans and to acknowledge their contribution made for our country during the prime of their lives, Phundrei Battalion of 9 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of HQ IGAR (South) organised Ex-Servicemen rally on 09 August at Company Operating Base Thoubal. The aim of the rally was to record the grievances of ex-servicemen, widows and dependents, and help ameliorate any privation and hardships faced by them and also provided an opportunity to update ex-servicemen about various new schemes and opportunities available for them. The rally was attended by 65 Ex-Servicemen hailing from Thoubal District. The meet was a grand success and brought together the serving and the retired fraternity of Assam Rifles.
