We never missed an Anzac Day and I think that's why I feel like I do about the army because I remember when I was little I used to stand and watch them coming down the road and I'd look at all the soldiers' faces and I'd think "Oh, brave, brave men".

They went to the war, you know. The war to me was something really, really bad and I thought they were so brave to go to the war. That's why it's been embedded in us, you know.

We've never missed an Anzac Day.
