Today's "Frazz" comic had a small salute.
Since we are still on the 24th - I was pleased to see this tho.
For an American comic strip to even remember is something.

Hi all

I'm just back from the Dawn Service held at 4.28am each year, the minute

when our troops landed at Galipolli this day in 1915.

When I was at school, in the time of Vietnam, there was much talk that
Day would fade away, and Australians forget why we mark that day.  Yet 
despite the steady loss of veterans over the years, there has been an 
equally steady rise in the number of people attending each year since.
morning was the largest crowd at the little suburban service I now
attend in 
the 12 years I've been going there.

Lots more kids too. They actually know a deal more about WW1 and what
ANZAC tradition means to this nation than you'd expect of youngsters.

Lest we forget.
