ANZAC Day 2013

Today, April 25 is ANZAC Day.  Having just spent over two weeks in Australia, I do want to take a moment to recognize the sacrifices and heroism of the soldiers and citizens of Australia and New Zealand. While ANZAC Day marks the landing at Gallipoli in 1915,  it's the Australian and New Zealand version of Memorial Day and recognizes the sacrifices, bravery and achievements of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. 

My knowledge of Gallipoli is limited and strongly influenced by the movie starring Mel Gibson. If you'd like to find out more about ANZAC day and the courage of Australian and New Zealand soldiers, head to any of these sites:
