Afghanistan and Iraq – ANZAC day 2012

Hug a digger day. Yo, what up my digger!

It is the 97th anniversary of the day ANZAC troops landed at Gallipoli, today we commemorate those who served in the First World War.

20,000 ex-servicemen are taking part in the Anzac Day march in their honour today and today every Australian salutes our armed forces with
utmost pride. It is that same pride that our armed forces carry when they serve and represent our country. Fighting for our lives and serving us all to keep our freedom. Even though in some peoples eyes our community is divided, this is the one thing that joins us all together as one. Say we get attacked from another country, your religion, race, colour creed, place of birth, stature, your bank account mean nothing as all we have are our armed forces to protect us all. When I was in the middle east as a part of Tour De Force to entertain the armed forces I saw first hand the unappreciated work that our armed forces do when abroad. Away from their loved ones, away from the creature comforts of home, living in horrible conditions and working extremely long and unexpected hours. After being there, hearing the stories and understanding why they do what they do I feel the job our troops are doing is completely called for and I have a newfound appreciation for our armed forces. Both of my grandfathers and my uncle was in the armed forces and never really talked about it a lot as I feel in their day it was not something that people respected and appreciated as much as they do now. Today is a day to stand up and say thank you to everyone who serves our country both home and abroad. Heres a couple of cool photos I took while on tour with The Angels and a stack of comedians entertaining the troops in the middle east.

(See our list of plugins used to integrate Matomo.) ** Log Analytics If the Javascript tracking method isn’t feasible, you can use server log analytics as an alternative method for tracking your website’s users. ** Mobile apps and SDKs Not tracking a website? You can alternatively track a mobile app or any other type of application using one of the available SDKs. ** HTTP Tracking API The HTTP Tracking API allows you to track anything. This may be useful if you are using a programming language for which no SDK exists yet. It may also be useful when you want to track devices or application in a special way.
