Honour those who served

Vietnam Veterans’ Day is commemorated on 18 August, which is the anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. This battle was one of the most significant conflicts for Australian service personnel who fought in the Vietnam War. 

Every year, RSL Queensland remembers the sacrifices of almost 60,000 Australians made – including more than 500 who died and some 3,000 who were wounded – during ten years of our involvement in the Vietnam War.   

The day is also a chance for us to recognise their service and thank the many Vietnam veterans who volunteer their time in Sub Branches and in their local communities. 

We invite the community to join us on 18 August to honour the veterans who served and sacrificed for our nation in the Vietnam War. 

How you can commemorate

There are several ways you can commemorate on 18 August. Attend an event at your local Sub Branch or tune into the Last Post Ceremony being held at the Australian War Memorial online.
