The weather might have been chilly, but that didn’t stop a crowd of more than 100 people turning out in Seymour on Monday evening to mark Vietnam Veterans Day.
The commemoration, which is growing in popularity, began at Luscombe Bowl with prayers, speeches by veterans, Federal Member for McEwan Rob Mitchell and State Member for Seymour Cindy McLeish and the telling of the Battle of Coral-Balmoral (April-May 1968) by Ron Holden and John Phoenix.
Students from Seymour and St Mary’s Colleges and Avenel and Puckapunyal Primary Schools then carried lanterns to the remembrance panel where wreaths were also laid. The participation of the schools has been a big factor in lifting the profile of the commemoration locally.
