2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. Vietnam Veteran’s Day not only commemorates and remembers Long Tan, but all the members of the Australian Army, Air Force and Navy that were involved in the Vietnam War between 1962 and 1975.
The Vietnam War was Australia’s longest military engagement during the 20th century. Involving almost 60,000 Australians, of which many were conscripted; causing the greatest social and political dissent in Australia.
