Aboriginal veterans will be honoured at the 11th annual commemorative service, held at the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander War Memorial.

All are invited to attend and reflect on the distinguished Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander personnel who have served in the Australian military. This includes conflicts and peacekeeping missions from the Boer War to the ongoing engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Keynote address will be delivered by John Kinsela, Aboriginal wrestling Olympian and veteran of the Vietnam War. Light refreshments will follow the service.

This event allows South Australians to pay tribute to the courage and tenacity of those who have made sacrifices for our country.
