Remembrance Day 2020
11 November 2020
Defence joins all Australians on Remembrance Day to honour those who have given their life in service to our nation on operations for more than a century.
The Chief of the Defence Force, General Angus Campbell, AO, DSC, attended the National Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and reflected on the significance of Remembrance Day.
“On November 11, we pause to reflect on the legacy of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation,” General Campbell said.
“In commemorating those who have come before us, we honour their contribution to our defence force and continue to draw on their example in challenging times.”
Many servicemen and women are currently deployed on Australian Defence Force operations around the world, actively defending Australia and its national interests, and providing assistance domestically to support the Whole-of-Government effort to address the impact of COVID-19.
Lest we forget.
