2017 Geelong Vietnam Veterans Day Ceremony

Sunday 13th August
Geelong 2017 GDVVAA Commemoration Ceremony.
 
The weather held, and the sun was shining at times, while the Vietnam Veterans marched down the Avenue of Honour to the Memorial at Swinburne Street. They joined the waiting crowd to participate in a solemn ceremony commemorating and remember those who have served, suffered and died and as a result of the Vietnam War.

This year the Guest Speaker was Brig. Michael Annett (Ret’d) State Secretary of the Victorian RSL. He spoke about his service in various positions with the Australian Army and appealed to Vietnam Veterans to reach out and help younger veterans where they can.
