VALE MP Alun Cairns was delighted to join Barry RAFA at their open day on King Square last weekend.
The day was enhanced by displays by Barry Air Cadets and Barry at War.
RAFA supports tens of thousands of people by offering a wide range of welfare services that include home and hospital visits from a volunteer field force; long term residential care; short-term convalescent and respite breaks; sheltered housing resettlement advice and advice on war pensions.
Mr Cairns said: "It was a pleasure to support and recognise the work of Barry RAFA who work tirelessly on a year round basis. It was good to see the Air Cadets in action to along with the presence of Barry at War following their own successful event a week earlier.
"I was delighted to see these groups working well together and how they can each help each other.
"I was humbled to chat to Normandy veteran Bob Froud at length and to hear about the part he played during the war. RAFA are providing and supporting people like Bob through a fantastic service".
