Vietnam War Heroes. Vietnam War

From 1962 approximately 50,000 Australians, including ground troops, air force and navy personnel served in Vietnam. 520 died and close to 2,400 were wounded.

The Vietnam War caused great social and political dissent. Conscripts were sent to Vietnam. Many draft resisters, conscientious objectors, and protesters were fined or gaoled, while soldiers met a hostile reception on their return home.

The Battle of Long Tan is arguably the most famous battle fought by the Australian Army during the Vietnam War. It was fought in a rubber plantation near the village of Long Tan, about 4 km north-east of Vung Tau, South Vietnam on August 18-19, 1966.
