United towards a better Barbados

The Barbados Defence Force (BDF) will remain united, working towards one vision.

This was the message of Chief of Staff of the BDF, Colonel Glyne Grannum, during a service to mark the 40th anniversary of that military organisation at the St. Matthias Anglican Church yesterday. The military leader said the Force can stand together and do what they are called to, which is to build the best Barbados they can, together.

He noted that over the past year, the BDF has been privileged to serve and commit to working with its local inter-agency and inter-ministerial stakeholders and partners and the Force remains resolute in its activities as it marches towards 2020.

“We will stand together, we shall remain committed to fulfill our mission to defend the people of Barbados…” said Col. Grannum.

In his sermon, the Reverend Dr. Marcus Lashley also encouraged the BDF to stand as a unified force, but he warned that people in the community will be looking for their vulnerabilities.

Rev. Lashley reminded them that they are standing before God and must support those who are weaker than they are and obey the rules.
