25April, 2017 Australia
On Apr. 25, we observe ANZAC Day, one of Australia’s most important and revered national occasions. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and the day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the World War I. With the many commemorative services and memorials available today, Anzac Day is a time at which Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war and honor those who have give their lives for service to their country.
