Vietnam Veterans Remembrance Day Service
Posted: 16-Aug-2016

Sunday 14th August included a laying of the wreath at the Vietnam Veterans Remembrance Day Service in Sturt St. It was particularly significant because of the focus on the 50 year anniversary of the battle of Long Tan.

The Australian War Memorial will mark the 50th anniversary of the battle of Long Tan and Vietnam Veterans’ Day in this week with a number of moving tributes honouring the 60,000 Australian men and women who served our nation throughout the Vietnam War.

The battle of Long Tan was fought on 18 August 1966.
