Hon­our­ing their sac­ri­fice

What does An­zac Day mean to you?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Lester Deen, Can­non­vale:

I think of the Aus­tralian dig­gers and the way they put in to keep this country alive and make it what it is to­day.

Dean Sverdloff, Can­non­vale:

It's about pride of na­tion. We're free to do what we want. Those old fel­las did us the world of good.

Jeff Hains, Flame­tree:

They saved us re­ally. My great-great-un­cle went to both world wars.

Chris Keats, Can­non­vale:

It's about tra­di­tion, the mil­i­tary and sac­ri­fice.

Ray Fancke, Can­non­vale:

My grand­fa­ther was an An­zac, and the mate­ship be­tween the Aus­tralians and the Ki­wis was great.

Betty Atkin­son, Pre­ston:

It means we owe a debt of grat­i­tude to all our for­mer sol­diers. And they should be sup­ported more by the govern­ment.

Linda Pea­cock, Can­non­va­l­ley:

A day that we re­mem­ber all the leg­ends that fought for our country so we can have the life that we have to­day.
