The American people join with Australians and New Zealanders around the world to commemorate April 25, ANZAC Day. We pay tribute to the brave men and women of Australia and New Zealand who have served and sacrificed for their countries and the values we share as free peoples. We salute the ANZAC spirit, recognizing the two countries that fought together 95 years ago at Gallipoli and remain united today by bonds of honor and fidelity. On ANZAC Day, we reaffirm our solemn debt of gratitude to all those who serve their countries, the veterans, the fallen, and their families in the name of peace and freedom. As the Ode of Remembrance says, “At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.”
