Vietnam Veterans’ Day was originally known as Long Tan Day, chosen to commemorate the men of D Company, 6RAR who fought in the battle of Long Tan on August 18 1966.
Now 57 years later we pause on 18 August to reflect on the bravery, teamwork and endurance that Australians displayed throughout the war. It’s a day when we recognise all who served in Vietnam.
In 2023, join RSL NSW as we commemorate 50 years since the withdrawal of Australian servicemen and women in Vietnam.
