I’ll tip back a pint this evening in memory of all the ANZAC troops, from World War One’s Battle of Gallipoli to the battle fought today. I’ll think of friends in both Australian and New Zealand militaries and good times deployed to bad places.

ANZAC Day

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

Each April 25th some of our closest allies; Australia and New Zealand, commemorate the service and sacrifice of their Veterans. It’s a rather solemn affair. The day begins with a dawn service and then, there are several other events throughout the day, including parades.

It’s bigger than Veteran’s Day here, with more participation. ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps. While April 25th might seem an odd date, it is actually the anniversary of the first major battle fought by ANZAC forces during World War One; the battle of Gallipoli, in what is now Turkey.

Please join us in honoring not only their fallen, but also the fact that they are on our team. Please take a moment and have an ANZAC biscuit on us.

Thank you Australia and New Zealand for everything you do in the Coalition.

101 Years of Honoring the ANZAC

Monday, April 25th, 2016

Having served with units from both Australia and New Zealand during my military service, they often come to mind, and on ANZAC Day, in particular. You see, every April 25th some of our closest allies; Australia and New Zealand, commemorate the service and sacrifice of their military. The day begins with a dawn service and there are several other events throughout the day including parades.

It’s bigger than Veteran’s Day is here, with more participation. It’s what Veteran’s Day was probably like after the War to End All Wars and ANZAC does have its roots in the memory of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps troops who served the empire in World War One.
