Anzac Day - Lest we forget

I would like to encourage all Australians to get up early on Saturday morning and attend your local Anzac day ceremony.

Lest we forget

Spare a thought for the blokes who, like my Dad (WW2), died slowly. 30+ years of nightmares and guilt, too many smokes & too many drinks before dying at 63.
PTSD is not new but seems to be better recognised and managed now.

Well said mate, thanks.
PTSD and that bastard black dog unfortunately keep many people who have served in the military from attending ANZAC day.

Our Daughter has just returned from spending 16 days in Gallipoli, Turkey and Eastern Europe. She entered a "Pride of Anzac" school short story competition and out of the 780 entrants, she was one of 16 selected to go on the trip.

She showed us some photos and described what happened in Gallipoli and even though it happened all those years ago, it still brought out the emotions in us. There's never a winner in War.

Lest we forget.

Thats pretty great , you must be proud , what an experience .

Spending the first 18 years of my life in another country i didn't realize how huge a part the ozzies played in both the first & second world wars ..
Most of this history we learnt at school very much focused on the poms .
