This time of year is supposed to a time of joy when we celebrate Fathers Day and for most they will. Me I’m playing at the Wangi Wangi RSL at 3pm, but a lot of dads will wake up more than likely with breakfast in bed and the kids bouncing on the bed or at least to the kids and maybe grandkids visiting. He himself will or may visit his dad and maybe they will have a big day with everyone around to say thanks for being you like they do on Mothers Day.
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 with this year being the 50th anniversary of that day. That day is this coming Thursday and I bet if you asked the average man woman or child they wouldn’t know.
