Remembrance Day 2017

November 10, 2017

Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry MP has encouraged the local community to pause on Remembrance Day today and reflect on the Australians who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our nation.

"Today is Remembrance Day that marks the signing of the Armistice that ended the First World War in 1918 and is now a day for Australians to observe one minute’s silence at 11 am in memory of those who have died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts,” Michelle Landry said.


“More than 1.5 million Australians have served in defence of our nation and values in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping — sadly, more than 102,000 have died.


“On Remembrance Day we stop and think about the lives cut short by war and how that has affected families, friends and communities.

 


“We also reflect on the men and women who volunteer to join our defence force and are prepared to fight and die for our country and our values.


“I encourage everyone in Capricornia to observe a minute’s silence at 11am and to wear a red poppy to honour those who have served.”
