The UAE will celebrate the 46th Anniversary of the UAE Armed Forces Unification Day tomorrow, under one central command and one flag, to become the defensive shield of the country and the protector of its achievements and gains.

The date, 6th May, is a glorious day in the country's history, as it was when the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the Rulers of the Emirates took the historic decision to unify the Armed Forces such as Zayed Military College which offers quality military training, prepare future leaders, and encourage increased harmony among security and army officers and Ministry of Interior officers.

President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued Federal Decree No. 20 for 2021 to establish the National Defence College as an entity independent of the Joint Command and Staff College, in implementation of the aspirations of the leadership to keep pace with the strategic environment and prepare the country's leaders at all levels, and under strategic plans for the advancement of the Armed Forces.

30th August, 2014, is a historic day in the UAE's history, which saw the first batch of Emirati citizens joining the National and Reserve Service and responding to their call of duty.

The Khawla bint Al Azur Military College was established to train female military cadres to join the Armed Forces. The college has become one of the primary sources for qualified female military recruits who work in many specialisations, including administrative and military media work.

Since the establishment of the country, the UAE Armed Forces have carried out a range of missions to rescue victims from theatres of war and disasters. Under this framework, the Armed Forces have set honourable examples of giving and sacrifice.
