This Anzac Day Squadron Leader Rebekah Herron says we need to look after those young veterans who are struggling after returning from war. ...

They fought for our Freeom 🙏🏽 Yet their has never been a more futile time in Australia. Corrupt Australian Corporates, Corrupt Tax Office and Dishonest/ Disloyal Politicians in Government Void of Morals Ethics and Honesty. Hopefully the next generations will show more rights and freedoms to those that need it most

People who have given their youths to the country should be looked after when they come back from war. And that regardless of whether the war was just or unjust. All soldiers were sent by the government. Therefore it is the government's responsibility to look after these soldiers

As a Canadian who has never been to Australia or New Zealand, ANZAC Day brings to mind the sacrifices made at Gallipoli. But I know it is about all fallen soldiers from all wars, and their sacrifice for our freedom.

Of course! Do we really need to tell our citizens that it's our duty to care for them? We know that already! The government system is the one that deny them that respect!

The reality is many veterans sit back in disgust at the outpouring of emotion from our supposed leaders who simultaneously approve of a department that revels in it's propaganda largesse whilst also spending millions on lawyers to deny veterans legitimate claims. Perhaps a royal commission would help shine a light rather than spending 500 Million on renovating the Canberra war memorial? Lest We Forget, indeed.

So we can find $100 million for memorials to the dead, but nothing for the survivors. Kinda sums up why this day seems a bit out of kilter these days.

What a sad day, we should be reminded all wars are futile and need to be avoided at all cost. Reading Philip Gibbs, ‘Now it can be told’ a war correspondent, most reporters had their work severely vetted and that was the condition of their employment with the major newspapers obfuscating the real picture of this terrible war...

War is a totally different beast now,your emery is no longer defines by uniform or position,he could be standing next to you,serving you coffee,more mental stress than ever before they have special needs that need catering to.

"For 100 years on Anzac Day we honour all the men and women who have participated in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world. Live coverage of the Anzac Day March from Canberra." This was taken from your official site. You showed all the pomp and ceremony and just as the actual march was beginning you reverted to the studio. Seriously, this day is supposed to be about about veterans not dignitaries receiving royal salutes and favoring us with their speeches. If you are going to advertise live coverage of the Canberra march, then show the live coverage Canberra march. Pitiful!

We most certainly do. unfortunately governments have very short memories, just look at Vietnam and every other war.

We especially need to look after all those veterans who have returned from fighting with Centrelink, the Big Banks, Corrupt Politicians, Corrupt Government Bureaucracy, Corrupt Judiciary, Corrupt Police, Corrupt AFP, Corrupt Big Business, etc.

"Oh, yep, we'll get to that - just need to spend $140m in France first."

The collective we need not do anything. The Army sent them there, stuffed them up mentally and emotionally, they should be the ones to clean up the mess. NOT the rest of us.

For the government to actually care for the people it is necessary to first have a government consisting of CARING people who wish to serve and not take.

Absolutely we do. If you can't afford to fix them when they get back you can't afford to send them in the first place.

Sadly the mistreatment of those who fought for freedom is an ancient shame-I remember doing Roman history as part of my Latin studies in secondary school & centurions became little more than homeless, destitute beggars on the streets. Surely our modern enlightened governments have to step up

Yes, by nor spending more money on the War Memorial, but on the War veterans.

Do not forget on this day the Preachers or Ministers that served some taken prisoners some killed in action they were there, they saw the bloodshed and the HORROR our men and women seen! A lot of time the Padre held hand as that person "Went to Glory" it was them saying words over the fallen as they were buried on foreign soil we remember the ADF men and women that fought and died and we must remember also the BRAVE PADRE armed with nothing else but their Bibles that never returned!

Look after them before the people that sent them to fight . How much is Howard getting from our purse after destroying Australia

Please explain to me how invading a country and killing its citizens is defending our freedom.

Anzac day, the greatest recruitment device yet..no need for conscription!

But the 500 mill wanted for a pretty new memorial would other wise provide an A1 facility for just that purpose.

And the older veterans-like a member of my family-who are fighting the demons of war long after they retired from 30+ years of duty. Lest we forget.

Liberals don't care one bit about our vets

I totally agree.

This is wonderful, amazing to watch. I think more of our Australian indigenous culture should be taught at schools. I feel that the little that is shown to our children is just tokenism.. The Haka always gives me goosebumps..

Very moving Australia needs to embrace all of our cultures and become world leaders in showing others we can live as one

One of the most deeply moving things I've seen in a long time. Brought tears to my eyes.

Wow powerful. I cried. Also loved seeing all the kids joining in and connecting to their culture. Congratulations to all involved

How absolutely perfectly 100% appropriate on such an important day

This makes me very proud to call myself a New Zealander plus having the privilege of call Australia home. Thank you for coming together as you have . Many wise words spoken today

Moved to tears - this was awesome!!!

Words fail me...just beautiful. Watch the lot. Thank you. 60,000 years...may we learn from this. Respect. Treaty for Australia.

Great vision. Congratulations to all concerned creating a spirit of inclusiveness

Incredible <3 you should all be so proud, feels like the start of something new, something better <3

Wow two beautiful ancient cultures coming together Lest we forget ! Beautiful performance by everyone I never thought I would see these two cultures coming together like this amazing.I loved it 🌏💜🇦🇺🇳🇿

Those aboriginal dancers had incredible moves , great to watch and they should go on tour around the country

What a great performance and beautiful display of two important cultures. Loved it! Thank you for the opportunity to see in Sydney. Congratulations to all the participants.

Absolutely amazing because of the passion and enthusiasm shown by this coming together of cultures. Young and old alike, being proud of their history and traditions. Wonderful

What an awesome sight the spirits of the land would be clapping their hands in merriment to see these great dancers performing to help with the cleansing...just magical....

This is a fitting ceremony

Thank you to all for sharing cultures. Brilliant

A lovely performance to watch, well done to all involved. A great tribute to all Australian and New Zealand cultures

LOVE it. Thank you. Could I ask a question regarding the Haka though? I remember a female sports team did the Haka and there was an issue because it isn't traditionally done by women. Is that strictly speaking correct? I noticed women partaking here but with different moves. Any insights?
