Anzac Day - 25 April - is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War in Gallipoli. Today, Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war and on operational service.

In the United States, we commemorate this day with regard to the military alliance between our countries. Australians have fought alongside the United States in every major battle since WWI, and the ANZAC spirit is key to this shared commitment and sacrifice.

Such a fitting commemoration of Anzac Day would not be possible without our generous sponsors: BHP, Schlumberger and Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company. A special thanks also to Christ Church Cathedral - vestry, clergy, choir and staff, the Cadet Corps of Texas A&M University, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Police Department, and a Sacred Choice.
