ANZAC DAY - Lest we forget

Friday 25th April 2014

War, police actions, skirmishes call them what you want, invariably they are the result of the actions of politicians, but the end result is that the men and women of our armed forces are required to be involved in any armed conflict that results from decisions taken by others.

Australia like all other countries has had too many of its citizens fall in the line of duty for their country.

Anzac Day is the day that we take time out to remember all of those who have died as a result of all wars.

We share this day with our Tasman neighbours, NewZealand, with whom there have been many concurrent battles.

To all men and women who have not returned "we will remember" you.
