Fallen heroes remembered

ABOUT 150 people turned out to honour our fallen heroes at the Vietnam Veterans' Day memorial service in Leslie Park yesterday.

The service was led by veteran John Palmer and included prayers and a reading of the Warwick Honour Roll to pay special tribute to the Warwick men who lost their lives in the conflict.

Wreaths were laid by veterans and their families as well as members of the public and Warwick State High School students Fraser Noble and Sophie Gliori placed a bunch of flowers on the memorial on behalf of their school.

John Skinner made a touching address, reflecting on his personal experiences in the Vietnam War and the ceremony was concluded with the national anthem.

Mr Palmer invited the attendees to join him and the veterans for lunch at the Warwick RSL following the service.

Vietnam Veteran's Day is a day for Australia to honour the 521 men who were killed in the Vietnam conflict.
