THE Air­lie Beach/Whit­sun­day RSL Sub Branch has ex­tended an open in­vi­ta­tion to the lo­cal com­mu­nity and vis­i­tors to at­tend a memo­rial ser­vice next Mon­day, Au­gust 18, in hon­our of Viet­nam vet­er­ans. The ser­vice will be held at 11am at the Can­non­vale Ceno­taph be­side the Can­non­vale State School.

RSL Sub Branch sec­re­tary, Ron James, said the ser­vice was ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of all Viet­nam vet­er­ans as well as the soldiers of D Com- pany 6 RAR, who lost their lives at the bat­tle of Long Tan, in South Viet­nam’s Phuoc Tuy Province, on Au­gust 18, 1966.

The ser­vice will be held in con­junc­tion with the Proser­pine RSL Sub Branch, which will al­low for all lo­cal vet­er­ans, vis­i­tors, fam­i­lies and friends to catch up and pay their re­spects.

The ser­vice will be fol­lowed by a re­union and ‘meet and greet’ at the RSL Rooms at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel.
