August 18 – Remembering the Vietnam Veterans, and the Battle of Long Tan.

If you missed it last year – my piece on Long Tan is here.

Until I began preparing that item I was unaware that LBJ himself had recognised the Australian force with a citation. We should learn to honour our military victories with the same enthusiasm as our sporting victories.

The anniversary of Long Tan has been chosen as our Vietnam Veterans Rememebrance Day.
