Sri Lanka Army celebrates its 65th anniversary and Army Day today.

Founded in 1949 as then 'Ceylon Army', but changed to be called the Sri Lanka Army in the year 1972 after Ceylon became a Republic, is the most respected, if not the most admired service provider of the country in the post-war scenario, mainly due to its unmatched warfare achievements in the humanitarian operations that eradicated terrorism from the Mother Lanka in May 2009.

Today with its 25 Regiments, the Sri Lanka Army with its multi-faceted development-oriented nation-building roles, has emerged as the most effective and visibly result-oriented organization in the country while performing commendable community services in every corner of the island, majority of which are in the war-affected north and east.
