National Commemoration Day - April 7

Each year Belgium remembers its veterans. The day selected to honour and commemorate our Belgian veterans is 7 April, in remembrance of 7 April 1994, when 10 Belgian servicemen were murdered in Kigali (Rwanda).

The first national Veterans’ Day was celebrated in 1998. On April 7 all those who participated in a risky mission abroad since 1960 are honoured.

On 7 April 2021 the War Heritage Institute honours the veterans during the National Commemoration Day.
