This Saturday August 15 is Vietnam Veteran's Day and while Mount Isa will have a commemoration at the cenotaph but it will not be business as usual.
Vietnam Veterans Day, originally known as Long Tan Day, is normally commemorated around August 18 every year and honours the men of Delta Company, 6th Battalion, RAR who fought in the Battle of Long Tan in 1966 in which 18 Australians lost their lives and another 24 were injured.
While the event at the Cenotaph is free, registration in advance is mandatory due to COVID-19 contact tracing requirements and a limit on attendees to allow social distancing.
This year is a dual commemoration as it also coincides with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in the Pacific - VP Day.
