Anzac Soldiers

Ancac day is the keystone of the Identity,for an entire nation, not only Australia,but for New Zealand as well.They were both newly declared a Federation, and steped up to the call for what was right, and met it head on with courage,fortitude of strength and friendship not often witnessed on the battle field. They put the term for a patiot, to a whole new meaning.There valour proved the worth of an entire nation and has not soon been forgotten, with commemeration cerimonies beginning the very year after the first landing in Turkey,honoring those that died for there country.Anzac Day could be considered a day to remember those that have been lost, but in truth it is a day to remember how the very best of man kind can come together and carved out the identity of a great nation.Leaders of nations such as Ataturk have said things like this about the soldiers that died at Anzac.
