Nothing from Albanese on Vietnam Veterans Day - 60 years commemoration of our involvement. Lest We Forget.
I've been hoping all morning for something from the PM.
Instead there's nothing.
Here's a summary of our involvement with the war in Vietnam from the Australian War Memorial:
The arrival of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962 was the beginning of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War. Australia's participation in the war was formally declared at an end when the Governor-General issued a proclamation on 11 January 1973. The only combat troops remaining in Vietnam were a platoon guarding the Australian embassy in Saigon, which was withdrawn in June 1973.
The Australian commitment consisted predominantly of army personnel, but significant numbers of air force and navy personnel and some civilians also took part.
From the time of the arrival of the first members of the Team in 1962 almost 60,000 Australians, including ground troops and air force and navy personnel, served in Vietnam; 521 died as a result of the war and over 3,000 were wounded.
A 60th anniversary - and as at 10.30 AM nothing from Australia's Prime Minister.
He's got time for photos of a walk with Annastacia
And there are plenty of photos on the Shrine to Albanese at Facebook
And this morning he found time to tell us he's now on a plane up to the Torres Strait..........
.....and that he's had a good old laugh this very morning with Stav, Abby and Matt on @B105Breakfast in Brisbane.
Time for all of that.
But not for the 60th anniversary - it's Vietnam Veterans' Day Prime Minister.
Lest We Forget.
