First Minister, Carwyn Jones, will join members of the forces community for today's parade through Cardiff city centre, before giving a reading at a special Drum Head service.
Speaking ahead of the event, he said: "Today is about much more than commemorating the sacrifice of soldiers in past conflicts alone; it's about showing our support for the whole Armed Forces community, past and present.
"We owe our serving military personnel and veterans a huge debt of gratitude. Their commitment and sacrifice both here and overseas helps ensure our freedom and safety."
The parade will start at Cardiff Castle at 10:30am and travel through the city centre, followed by the Drum Head service at Coopers Field at 12pm.
