Sri Lanka is all set to pay tribute to the memory of patriotic fallen war heroes in the series of ‘Dasawarshabhishekaya’ (Decade of Peace) ceremonies, which are scheduled to commence tomorrow (19) and conclude on May 22nd, says Sri Lanka Army.

In view of the National War Heroes’ Day tomorrow, island-wide ‘peace walks’ have been planned in major cities with the participation of President Maithripala Sirisena and relatives of fallen war heroes, according to the Army.

It is to be attended by the relatives of fallen tri-service and Police war heroes.
