Vietnam veteran Trevor Hargreaves spoke to Grahamvale Primary School students at a special Anzac Day assembly yesterday morning about Australia’s war involvement.
Mr Hargreaves, 66, was conscripted to serve in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970.
He said it was important students remembered Australia’s fallen men and women in conflict spanning from World War I to Afghanistan.
‘‘There are no winners in war, we’re all losers,’’ he said.
Among the audience was Mr Hargreaves’ two grandchildren Remi, 6, and Jett, 7.
Students observed a minute’s silence during the assembly that concluded with a rendition of the The Last Anzac.
