Moruya RSL Sub Branch

Do you know when Vietnam Veteran's Day is commemorated in Australia? This year marks 60 years since Australia's first involvement in the Vietnam War.

The day of this service, 18 August, marks the 56th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. On this day in 1966, in a rubber plantation near the village of Long Tan, Australian soldiers fought one of their fiercest battles of the Vietnam War. This day would become known as Vietnam Veterans' Day.

Approximately 60,000 Australians served in the Vietnam War. Of these, 3,000 were wounded, and 521 were killed.
