On Anzac Day, our community will gather to honour the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation.
2023 is a significant year as it marks 50 years since the end of the Vietnam War and 70 years since the end of the Korean War.
I encourage you to get along to a local service this Anzac Day and take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by all those who have served.
