Anzac Day

Anzac day was Saturday and we had a very busy day. We got up at 4:30am to go to the dawn service and then DH participated in an event at a local Returned Servicemen's League (RSL). For non-Australians, Anzac day is kind of like Veteran's Day or Rememberance Day.

I heard this song a couple of months ago at an army band event and I thought it was appropriate to post it around Anzac Day. For any Melbourne people, the Defence Force School of Music has free twilight concerts during the summer months. They are a lot of fun and really worth going to.
Anyway at the last concert we went to, the band performed the song "Poster Girl" by Beccy Cole, and I was almost in tears. It has a really beautiful message.

Beccy went to entertain the troops in middle east a couple of years ago, and some of her fans rejected her because of it. She wrote the song Poster Girl in response.
