It was an honour to attend today's Commemoration Service for the Battle of Coral and Balmoral.
Organised by the Vietnam Veterans' Federation SA Branch, the service saw many veterans and members of the community paying their respects to those whole lost their lives in this conflict.
His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC was able to attend, as well as Member for Boothby, Nicole Flint.
The Vietnam Veterans Federation's members and volunteers did an incredible job of organising this service of remembrance.
I would like to mention the dedication of Larry Davenport, Eric Ciracovich OAM, Mal Thiele and Phil Scroop for their various roles throughout the service.
It was truly a time to reflect on the great sacrifice of our service men and women throughout all times in history.
The Chaplin for the service, Franc Ahlin, invited the people in attendance to extend a moment of personal reflection for those who lost their lives in conflict.
As the representative of the Premier, it was an honour to lay two books at the service that discussed Australian wartime history.
These books will be donated to Warradale Primary school and Marion Primary school.
