ANZAC Day - Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

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."

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours ... You, the mothers who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."

Mustafa Kemal ATATURK's letter to ANZAC soldiers.

Respect.

A lot of Aussies do, usually in the early morning hours around closing time when everyone that's left is all proper drunk and emotional XD

Is that time of year again unfortunately,

"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."

Often forgotten part of the war, the Australlians, New Zealanders, Indian, Pakistani, South African & Canadians who fought alongside the British (especially forgotten the parts of defending British pacific and asian territories, such as the Burmese-Indian front and New Guinea and that).

'murican, appreciate what these guys did in your Pacific theatre^^
