Battle of Long Tan Commemoration

MS THOMSON — I would also like to take the time today to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. To all the Vietnamese veterans in my electorate and to the Australian Vietnam veterans, I want to say that you have not been forgotten. This was a battle that took a lot of lives and a lot of courage, and we think of you on this day.
