Vietnam Veteran’s Day and VP Day Commemorated

Vietnam Veteran’s Day (Battle of Long Tan Day) was commemorated in the service at Flagstaff Hill in Wollongong by the Vietnam Veterans Association yesterday. A very nice service was held and our Sub Branch was proud to lay a wreath in commemoration.

Today we held our Victory in the Pacific Day Ceremony. It was attended by members of our local community as well as the Sub Branch. The service was held to remember the day that Japan Unconditionally surrendered in WWII, ending the threat posed to Australia in the Pacific. We remembered all of those who paid the ultimate price to defend Australia.

We remember them.

Lest we forget.
