Anzac Day is a time for all Australians to respect and remember the more than 1.5 million servicemen and women who have defended our freedoms in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and the more than 102,000 who sacrificed their lives for our country.

In towns and cities across Australia and around the world, Australians will attend services to salute the bravery, mateship and sacrifice of the men and women who have defended our freedoms and values for more than a century.

We also recognise current servicemen and women and the support they receive from their family and friends. We owe our modern day veterans and service personnel an immeasurable amount of thanks.

I encourage all Australians to participate in Anzac Day commemorations and acknowledge those who have served and continue to serve our country.

Lest we forget
