The memorial service was led by the Republic of Fiji Military Forces chief of staff Brigadier-General Jone Kalouniwai.

Wreaths were placed at the Sukanaivalu Barracks memorial plaque to remember the fallen.

For some of the ex-servicemen that were present at the dawn service, the event brought back memories of those who had given their lives for peace and freedom.

The soldiers who died were Private Temo Veilewai, Private Osea Rokosirinavosa and Private Simione Rawaileba.

Officer in charge Sukanaivalu Barracks captain Samuela Cikaitoga described the event as a celebration to remember the fallen heroes who sacrificed a lot for the nation.
