Today, we aussies/kiwi's both honor and mourn our fallen soldiers who died protecting us in Gallipoli in 1915, so future generations could lead a better life.
It is a day of remembrance for not only the battle of Gallipoli, but of all past wars and all those that have served in the army.
Now, I know that there are only a couple aussie players, but it is a very big thing and important day for us.
So much respect for them, as my great grandfather fought and died in that war. If they didn't go to fight, I would not be here telling you this today.
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
