I used to live right next door to the army barracks - when we were there, every ANZAC day my dad and I, and a friend of mine, would get up and go to the dawn service on site. Unfortunately, with the terror threat level being what it is, we're no longer allowed to do that.
I still try and take a moment each ANZAC day to remember our soldiers, and will often go out for a meal as a kind of "we have the freedom to enjoy little luxuries because of our troops".

My family and I have a quiet day at home. It is an extra day to relax together and get jobs completed around the house. The day itself has no meaning to me or my family. I don't support war in any way and I don't think lying about your age to join as a young person is applaudable nor to fight and assist the British forces so they could capture Constantinople is fighting for Australia nor Australian's freedom.
