Vietnam Day - Commemoration at Pukeahu National War Memorial
The 18th of August marked 50 years since the Vietnam War. The day was commemorated both abroad and here in New Zealand - many Vietnam War veterans gathered at the Pukeahu National War Memorial and the Michael Fowler Centre in Wellington to sing, pray, remember and pay their respects to family and friends. Large photos of those killed in action in Vietnam were displayed in the Michael Fowler Centre, and the RNZAF band performed. The bugler sounded the Rouse, and the national anthems of both the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, and New Zealand were played.
Our National President BJ Clark represented the RNZRSA at the commemoration.
