★ Australians have many heroes some of which are military personnel. The Victoria Cross is an award for acts of bravery in wartime and Australia’s highest honour. One hundred Australians have been awarded the Victoria Cross.
★ Each year Remembrance Day, November 11, we observe one minute’s silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.
★ The Australian Defence Force is the first in the world to implement recognition of Military Working Dogs.
