Why Long Tan Day - 50 Years Anniversary is special ?

Earlier this year (2015), former soldiers of the Liberation Army extended the hand of friendship to their Australian counterparts at several ceremonies that were held in Vung Tau and Ba Ria, Vietnam.

An organizing committee made up of several veterans has been established to hold a Gala Dinner next year on 18 August 2016 in Vung Tau. In attendance will be 40 Vietnamese members and several guests of honor from Australia including Lt Col Harry Smith SG MC (Ret), WO Keith Payne VC (Ret) and Daniel Keighran VC, and members from all branches of the Australian military veterans.

Australia has a strong presence in Vietnam with more than 20,000 Vietnamese students studying in Australia annually and a population that has assimilated into to Australia’s way of life. The Gala Dinner has been organized to build stronger bonds between both countries.

We have strong bonds and trading relationships with Turkey (Gallipoli) Germany (Western Front) Japan (Kokoda) South Korea and now Vietnam.

The Dinner will be held at the Pullman Hotel in Vung Tau which is a new five star resort with seating capacity of 2,000 people. Veterans, partners, children, friends and public are invited to attend this dinner of friendship on 18 August.
