ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day is the most important national remembrance event for both Australia and New Zealand. ANZAC Day commemorates the Gallipoli Campaign, Australia and New Zealand's first operational commitment of the Great War that resulted in the deaths of 12,000 Australians and New Zealanders on the Gallipoli Peninsula. Each year, Australians and New Zealanders will gather for the conduct of a dawn service on 25 April, marking the day the ANZACs' stormed the beach for what would be a brutal and bloody campaign. The dawn service is followed by a gunfire breakfast where participants will share a coffee and rum with their breakfast. In keeping with the traditions of their countries, TRADOC Foreign Liaison Officers hosted the ANZAC Day dawn service at the Douglas MacArthur Memorial Museum in Norfolk, VA.
