Monday April the 25th is ANZAC Day here in Oz and N.Z. It is a public holiday. There is a dawn service in most towns followed by a march past of ex-servicemen and women. A day to reflect on what our troops achieved in all wars from the Boer War onwards.

It is, therefore, rather pertinent that I came across this short video showing how some US WW2 survivors have been honoured.

I still have a good friend Luther Tate, that fought in WWII, the Korean war, and in Vietnam, he will turn 94 this July. I love hearing his stories. He was a pilot and flew P51's during WWII , then flew right into the jet age. He once owned a P38 that he purchased for $1800 and that included two extra new engines. He's kinda thinking he shouldn't have sold that, and yes of course he has owned a few Model T's. Gary Sinise has and is doing wonderful things for our service men. Thanks for sharing.

Dane,
Anzac Day will be super special this year for me.
My 1916 Model T and my Dads old 1910 Model T will feature in a commemorative event recognizing the loss of 5000 lives of Aussie soldiers at the battle of Fromelles on the Western front in France. Some descendants of those that died at that horrible battle will join for breakfast prior to the Anzac day Football match. The Grandson and Granddaughter of the original owner of the 1910 Model T will see the car for the first time ever. Their uncle, the son of the first owner of the T, died at the battle of Fromelles. My 1916 T will serve as an example of the kind of first Model T that was sent to the Western Front in France as part of the 1st Australian Light Car Patrol. Stripped Down 2nd hand 1916 T's were used as observation and gunning vehicles. I will post a story and pictures after the event.
