Every year on ANZAC Day we pause, reflect, and give thanks to all those who have served our country with honour and distinction in conflicts and peacekeeping missions across the world.
The values our diggers fought for on the beaches of Gallipoli and across the trenches of Europe through WWI are ones we still hold dear today. Our country has a strong history of upholding all that which is moral and virtuous, one we should be continuously proud of.
Right across our region the connection to our incredible military is clear. From the inspirational story of Weary Dunlop, a man who called our backyard home, to the thousands of personnel who have and continue to call Puckapunyal home.
I encourage everyone to attend a dawn service or ceremony in your community and take the time to respectfully thank and acknowledge all those who have served our nation and made our country the best place in the world to live.
