On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send best wishes to the people of Australia and New Zealand on ANZAC Day this April 25. Today we stand together to honor the memory of the courageous heroes of Gallipoli and pay tribute to all of the proud men and women who have served in the defense forces of Australia and New Zealand. We celebrate the bond that Australians and New Zealanders have gained through their shared sacrifice and reflect on the virtues of hope, courage, and freedom that unite our three nations. The United States is honored to have such strong partners in promoting peace and prosperity in the world.
