Did you know in Australia, August 18th is Vietnam Veterans Day. Originally it was a day to commemorate the Battle of Long Tan that occured in 1966, it has since been adopted by all veterans. That day is this coming Tuesday and I bet if you asked the average man woman or child they wouldn’t know.
So read what is below including a time line at the end and become familiar with it or at the very least the date – August 18th and pay your respects to all Vietnam Veterans around the world – they deserve it; Lest We Forget.
I know it has nothing to do with music but I was asked to attend the RSL NSW State Congress – and it was an eye opener to say the least and the brass was in attendance yep very top heavy from State Governors to Federal Ministers! What an introduction…
As a former soldier (many years ago) and a member of an RSL Sub Branch where I hold the position of Assistant Secretary/Treasurer and also Comms Manager, I like many others volunteer our time (a lot of it) and help other current and former defence personnel including there families where possible.
