Service honouring the sacrifice of Diggers
Day to reflect onwar and show gratitude
WHAT does Remembrance Day mean to you?
Of course it is known around the world as the day the First World War drew to a close after the Armistice of Compiegne was signed.
But with any global event such as this, there is something – whether it be a memory or a relative or something else – that gives the day extra meaning.
So what does it mean to you?
For me, Remembrance Day is about taking time to show respect and gratitude to those who died fighting for our future.
It is a day to honour those men and women, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters who have the courage to travel to a place beyond our imagination and fight for what our flag represents.
It is a day to remember relatives I’ve never met, like Neil Anthony McInerney, my great uncle, who was killed in the Vietnam War in 1968.
And it is a day to respect and admire the courage and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in the Australian Defence Force today, fighting in conflicts across the globe.
Lest We Forget.
