Today, April 25th is one of the most special days in the Australian calendar, it is the day when all australians take time to give thanks and remember the sacrifices may by the men and women of our Armed Forces, in the past, present and future.

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and this day commemorates that landing of the ANZACs at Gallipoli in 1915 which was the first major military action by the Australian and New Zealand armed forces in World War I.   I love the fact that this day is marked so well by all Australians, this morning over 35,000 people turned up in the pouring rain to the dawn service in Melbourne alone, its quite amazing. My aim is to definitely attend the dawn service here next year, and then I really hope to be able to attend the 100th Anniversary in Turkey in 2015, which was an aim of my uncle Gary who passed away from cancer last year, I want to attend for him because he never made it there in his lifetime even though it was a dream of his.

So this is my way of saying thanks to the Service Men and Women of Australia and the rest of the world, past, present and future for what they do, thank you for the sacrifices that you and your families make and for being far braver than I ever could be.
