    War heroes should be well treated. There is a crowd in Sri Lanka
    mostly unpatriotic, inclined to bankrupt opposition not mindful that they were rescued from gruesome terrorists by these soldiers.

    Defense is everything.. It is well evident ,comparative situations now and situation then in SL and Defense is an on going process.. It is a journey rather than a destination.. These allocations should be continued..

    Our heros deserve the best of uniforms, salary, health care and education for them and their families. We can walk, travel by bus or railway not fearing of bomb blasts, mines and other devices because of our heros. Thank you.

    I see that is what is called PATRIOTISM I guess ....
