In Denmark the Royal family as well as the Parliament honors personnel deployed within the past one year with a parade and reception at the parliament in Copenhagen. Across Denmark a number of parades and memorial services are held to commemorate deployed personnel.

At HQ MNC NE the Danish contingency celebrated the day, too. 73 soldiers and their families gathered together in front of the monument for the fallen HQ MNC NE soldiers in the Baltic Barracks.
