100 stories reflect 100 years of Anzac
10 March 2015
Australian Defence Force members have recorded personal messages that reflect what the Centenary of Anzac means to them.
One hundred stories, reflecting on 100 years of Anzac, will be published throughout 2015 to highlight the significance of the Anzac Centenary to current serving members of the ADF.
Vice Chief of the Defence Force, Vice Admiral Ray Griggs said the Anzac Centenary was an opportunity for servicemen and women to remember those who had gone before them.
“The first Anzacs played a significant role in forging Australia’s national identity and defined our national character. They left a strong and enduring legacy that is carried forward by the men and women of the ADF today,” VADM Griggs said.
“These personal messages provide an insight into the significance of the Anzac Centenary to the men and women who continue to serve Australia and its national interests today.”
Commencing today, three messages will be published each week at www.defence.gov.au/events/centenaryofanzac, and will be disseminated on the various Defence social media including @DeptDefence and @VCDF_Australia twitter accounts.
