Impressive attendance at Vietnam Veterans Day 2018

There was an impressive attendance at Vietnam Veterans Day, held at Montague Farm Estate on Saturday 18 August. The event was also held to commemorate the anniversary of the battle of Long Tan.

People of all ages gathered to pay their respects and listen to guest speakers, including the Governor of South Australia His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC and Senator David Fawcett (Deputy Government Whip in the Senate Chair of Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade), as well as students from Mawson Lakes School who read a “Poem For the Fallen”.

The Salisbury City Band provided incredible music which was very fitting of the Vietnam era, and veterans attended from both Australia and Vietnam.
