For veteran John Hunter, the importance of ANZAC Day and remembering fallen mates and honouring the values of sacrifice and courage never diminishes. Every year, he attends the Dawn Service and marches in the parade.
John was conscripted into the 6th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment as a signaller from 1967 to 1969. “ANZAC Day is about love, friendship and the attitude of getting the job done” says John. It also reminds him of his father’s bravery when he served in New Guinea in WWII.
John is still giving back to his community as a volunteer at Meals on Wheels in Maroochydore. He really enjoys his involvement. “It feels good to be helping local elderly residents stay in their own homes by supplying them with wholesome and nutritious meals’’.
At Suncare we honour and thank all those past and present who serve(d) in the Australian Armed Forces, thus providing a better, safer future for generations to come.
