Anzac Day Australia

I thought I would just post a small tribute to commemorate Anzac Day here in Australia. My personal tribute to those who have served defending our great country to make it what it is today. Many have not returned from battlefields all over the world. No matter what our personal opinions we must pay tribute to their sacrifice. I was a national service conscript but did not serve overseas as we withdrew from Vietnam prior to me being posted.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of theAustralian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Adding an edit: I was just communicating with a friend of mine on Facebook and they actually come from Turkey. I have apologised to him for not including remembrance of his county’s loses in that terrible war. I have done now. “Lest we forget”.
