G'day,

I didn't see the show, but heard it was fairly good. As it was the anniversary of the battle a few weeks back the ABC had a special on Australian vets returning to the battlesite. it was a very emotional experience for them and some were able to confront their inner demons.

Regards to all,

There was a poll thing about whether the long tan veterans should have been awarded for their part in the war or sumthing like that, thta was also around the time when the Battle of Long Tan was advertising, and i believe that they should have been awarded/remembered for what they did.
