Anzac Day in Kabul, Afghanistan


Anzac Day in Kabul, Afghanistan (1.38 mins)

At the Dawn Service in Kabul, Afghanistan, both Australian and Turkish Defence Force personnel gathered to commemorate this solemn occasion, along with representatives from coalition partners and special guests. On Anzac Day, we remember not only the original Anzacs who died on 25th April 1915, but every one of our service men and women who have died or served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Anzac Day is a time to reflect on the contribution made by all of our past and present service men and women who have displayed great courage, discipline and self-sacrifice in choosing a life of service to their country. The Anzac spirit lives in the hearts and minds of all Australians as we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who contributed so much in shaping the identity of this proud nation. Approximately 2240 ADF members are currently deployed on operations, continuing the Anzac spirit whilst serving Australia’s national interests at home and in many countries around the world.
