He made it back to Australia with body intact but a different man came home harley spoke to anybody after the war 
passed away few years after. The war took my mums dad away

My GRand Father was shot in the knee going over the top. Always had a stiff joint and couldn’t walk properly. Felt lucky as the machine gun recoil meant it traversed higher as it went and caught those further along in the chest. Told me a couple of stories that would make your hair stand up. As Company Shot he became their go to sniper.

I served but didn't go anywhere. Same with my parents. But we all saw the effects on those who did return, with and without physical injuries. So many were and are mentally scarred.

I worked for a time at the Northern Command Personnel Depot and saw everyone leaving through Brisbane. I grew up very quickly.

Let's not forget and care for those who are living with demons after returning.

Lots of military members live with demons after they leave the service and for some this time of year is difficult because they want to dump all those bad memories behind but the sound of the last post drags those memories back. I remember one ANZAC day many years ago I was in the RAAF and we were in Yass and the combination of drizzly weather and the last post sent shivers up my spine and it is one of those feelings that never leaves.
In 2000 I was in East Timor on ANZAC day and I often wonder how many of those who were there that day still have their demons in their life.
But what we have to remember is not all military members were deployed and those that stayed often have their own demons that they deal with for many reasons.

And, IMHO, there are too many who do not understand or appreciate the sacrifices made for the freedom we enjoy. I, will honour them in the morning and throughout the day. For me, tomorrow is the day to remember them and that starts well before dawn.

It's going to be raining and cold, the crowds will be thin, but many will turn up to remember them.

I couldn't give a f.uck for the media BS and politicians having their speel. I attend a solemn and quite soulful service at a little town called Cudgen. If you're ever in the area to attend a dawn service make sure you attend. If the hairs on ya neck, and arms don't stand up, or you never shiver at least once as the bagpipes play and drummer leads the parade, nor shed a tear as the screed is read for those who were lost, then sacrifice is not yours to understand.

Lest we forget.

I don’t know what it is, but to me it seems the colder and wetter it is, the more people show up to our local service. Perhaps an acknowledgment to the conditions our fallen heroes fought for our freedom in. I don’t know, but I am grateful our nation takes this time. Lest we forget.

i respect those that served right till this day our soldiers and fallen did great  and i thank them

 

however though

 

we forget those that took care of our fallen and injured during these times the nurse and doctors 

they also played a huge part  in keeping some of our loved ones returning to us...

 

 

to all that served and played their part to keep us safe my hats go off to you all,  LEST We Forget

a mate of mine was conscripted  to vietnam and still to this day the guy has nightmares, it wasnt his choice that he had to fight for his country

 

My mate told me  soon as he landed in his home state after his tour, he just got of a plane in South Australia, standing there minding his own busniess , standing at a train station in Belair waiting his next  train to home in is arm forces gear... this day brought a tear to his eyes becuase a 5 year old came up to him and pissed on him saying you are a worthless piece of ****... This young kids mother told the lad to say that... My Mate stood there like he was at attention and just took it, what could he do...

 

Vietnam war  is something we reallly never had to be involved in but we was....many of our soldeirs was conscripted and you was given no choice wether you agreed or didnt agree with it... but no one who has served our nation deseves to be treated in such away

 

 

I am glad to have met this guy and i am proud to say to him thanks mate i shed a tear on such days of rememberence for you and those that have passed

 

many Australians and they should be ashamed of them selves who thought it was best to bash, piss or whatever to our returned serviceman, but alot of these men and women didnt go becuase they wanted to but there nation called on them....

 

Thankyou to everyone that has served our country 

 

lest we forget
