Second Era National Service 50th Anniversary

June 30, 2015 marked the 50th Anniversary of the commencement of the second (1965-1072) Australian National Service Scheme.

Half a century ago, the first of the 63,735 young men called up for two years (later reduced to 18 months) service in the Regular Army marched into Recruit Training at Kapooka, Puckapunyal and later Singleton.  Of these, 150 served in Borneo and 15,381 in Vietnam.  212 made the Ultimate Sacrifice.

The era was most significant in Australian military history with the war in Vietnam and the rapid escalation in the size of the Australian Army.

Although not part of their original life plan, most regarded their time in the Service favourably.

It is proper that this milestone was appropriately acknowledged.  Accordingly, the National Servicemen's Association of Australia, in conjunction with the O.T.U. Association planned a ceremony to pay the occasion the recognition it deserves.

A commemorative service was held at the National Service Memorial in Canberra, ACT at 1000 hours on June 30, 2015.  It took the form of a march from the National War Memorial to the site followed by the service itself.
