As was said by Rear Admiral Stuart Mayer (Commander of the Australian Fleet) during the dawn services & marches in Sydney,
"This morning, we don't boast about triumphs & victories"  "We remember the sacrifice of those who were prepared to stand up for someone else, for people that believed that there was something bigger, more important than their own interests & were prepared to put others ahead of themselves & put their lives at risk because of those beliefs"  noting that Australia has lost, 102,825 men in war since 1861.

Combat Engineer & Paralympic gold medallist Curtis McGrath (a young war veteran who lost both his legs during an improvised explosion in Afghanistan)  summed it up nicely when he said, "The true measure of a nations decency, was how it cared for the wounded men & women who had given so much for their country.
"On this Anzac Day, we look back on the courage, endurance, mate-ship & sacrifice"  
"We honour those who have died & suffered in old & new wars".  
"May we as a nation, continue to provide those men & women who have served us, with dedicated, unhesitating service to our fighting forces."

"Lest We Forget"

Yes respect for all that have served and the many that did not return fighting for our freedom.
