Vietnam veterans leading by example
Members of the Vietnam Veterans Peacekeeper and Peacemaker Association Central Coast sub-ranch and the public have commemorated the iconic battle on Long Tan.
The action involved the Australian task force 53 years ago on August 18, 1966.
The sub branch appreciates the support provided by Brisbane Water Brass Band, national service 1951-72 re-enactment unit and the public at this important ceremony.
In a short report to Sub-Branch members at the luncheon (Diggers Ettalong) president Alan Ball highlighted the important services provided by the sub branch volunteers.
One example is the Nambus crew who continue to educate school students throughout NSW, with their first-hand accounts of training and then active service deployment to South Vietnam.
Responses from students have been appreciated by all members and associates of the sub branch.
The Nambus crew provided them an insight into an environment often beyond their comprehension and comfort zone.
The sub branch committee and its members are leading by example and supporting Australia's Veterans.
