Residents to prepare for Anzac

As Anzac Day approaches, local communities will remember not only those who fought on the beaches of Gallipoli and the trenches of the Western Front, but all Australians who have served and the 103,000 who have died for our country.

Federal Member for Blair Shayne Neumann said Ipswich and the Somerset Region had a proud history of military service, and Anzac Day was an opportunity for the local community to remember those from the region who had given so much for our nation.

“It’s a day that brings us together as a nation, uniting us and helping us to transcend our differences.

“I encourage everyone to check local newspapers and online for services and marches being organised by RSLs, schools and other community groups, and to attend a commemoration in your local community,” Mr Neumann said.

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) has developed a digital Anzac Day Kitbag to support Australians conducting their own Anzac Day service, whether that be at home or in the community.
