Remembrance Day 2016
The Nationals Member for Murray, Damian Drum is encouraging the Murray community to honour Remembrance Day and remember every Australian who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our nation.
Mr Drum said Remembrance Day on November 11 marks 98 years since the Armistice which ended the First World War.
“On this day we honour more than 102,000 Australians who died serving our country,” Mr Drum said.
“This is also a special opportunity to honour the many local servicemen and women who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom in all theatres of war and conflict.
“I encourage everyone across the electorate, if they can’t attend a ceremony, to pause for one minute’s silence at 11am.
“Another great way to support your local RSL is to buy and wear a red poppy in memory of our servicemen and women.
“It is important we keep their memory alive and educate the next generation about their service and sacrifice.
“I congratulate all RSL branches in Murray on their hard work and outstanding service on behalf of veterans and their families,” Mr Drum said.
