Anzac Day Yesterday


Yesterday on April 25th, AUSTRALIA and NEW ZEALAND celebrated the 102nd anniversary of Anzac Day. This annual day commemorates the service of all veterans who served and are serving in wars and peacekeeping missions. By the way, ANZAC is an acronym for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Australians and New Zealanders (Kiwis) first observed the holiday in 1916 — in order to memorialize binational troops arriving at Gallipoli (TURKEY) to fight in World War I against the Ottoman Empire.
