Vietnam Memorial TreePrint Page Print this page

A tree commemorates those who served in the Vietnam War.

Australia's military involvement in the Vietnam War was the longest in duration of any war in Australia's history. The arrival of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962 was the beginning of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War. Australia's participation in the war was formally declared at an end when the Governor-General issued a proclamation on 11 January 1973.

The end-date of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War has officially been amended to 29 April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement in the war during the fall of Saigon in 1975.  The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, in Canberra now recognise this new date.

I couldn't find this tree, so contacted the Friends of Maddingley Park to see if they could help me locate it.

Nobody in the group knew anything about it, even their resident "tree expert".  So I've emailed the Bacchus Marsh RSL to see if any of their Vietnam Vets know where it is.
