Army is the lat sentinel to the Nation's territorial integrity. Our valiant officers and men dedicate themselves to this honourable task. In the call of duty some of these brave solders achieve martyrdom and a few are injured for life. The Indian army has set up two centres to provide institutionalised care to those soldiers, who cannot adequately provide for themselves the constant medical care associated with quadriplegia and paraplegia.
