Finnish Veterans’ Day, April 27

Finnish Veterans’ Day is on April 27 every year.  Here is an awesome rendition of “Veteraanin Iltahuuto” (Veterans’ Last Post) by soloist Jorma Hynninen, the Navy Orchestra, Veterans Grand Choir and combined choirs from the Turku area, performed at the Turku Conference Centre.

The song is a tribute to all those who sacrificed and fought for the survival of the nation and a plea to keep their memory alive.
