'SLAF contribution to end war remarkable'
Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa praising the service of the Sri
Lanka Air Force, said that our war heroes have proved that if the
correct leadership is given there is nothing impossible for them to win.
"The skill and capability of the service personnel behind the
equipment manoeuvring it, mattered most in winning this war against
terrorism," he said.
"We greatly appreciate the responsibilities carried out by the Air
Force who accurately attacked the enemy target avoiding innocent
civilian casualties," he said.
The Defence Secretary said so at the ceremony held yesterday at
Katunayake Air Force Base to appreciate the contribution of the Air
Force personnel who helped to successfully end the humanitarian mission
saving the country.
Addressing the gathering the Air Force Commander Air Chief Marshal
Roshan Goonetilake said, "We won because we acted as a team. Each team
member were highly dedicated at every given task. Be it success or
failure the entire team took the responsibility on to their shoulders."
