Monument good place to reflect on history
From page 1 Mrs Roberts thanked members of the Koondoola Peace Park working group, which included Wanneroo RSL and VCA members, for their contribution to the project.
Dr Nguyen said he approached the City about having a monument to commemorate the Battle of Long Tan and appreciated the result of the project.
“It will be a good place for anyone who wants to reflect about Australian history,” he said.
Wanneroo RSL president Jack Le Cras said the veterans’ sub-branch would also look at holding services at the park in the future.
Dr Nguyen said the first part of the April 29 event would be unveiling the artwork, with the annual Black April commemoration of the Fall of Saigon on April 20, 1975 to follow.
