Vietnam Vets join impromptu march to memorial
Members of the Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Association Central Coast sub-branch took part in an impromptu march at Ettalong on Anzac Day, April 25.
The march followed a service at the Ettalong Diggers Club.
"The day is particularly memorable for the impromptu march from the Club to the foreshore memorial led by the Re-enactment Unit group closely followed by ranks of Sub-Branch members," said sub-branch president Mr Alan Ball.
"Marching through Ettalong was a standard feature of past ceremonies.
"Members have proudly upheld the tradition customary for this day."
He said the veterans had defeated the challenges of Covid-19 to commemorate Anzac Day at Ettalong.
The sub-branch appreciated Club chief executive Mr Bill Jackson, the club's staff and "all those who assisted in the ceremony", he said.
