PEACEKEEPER DAY


CALL FOR AUSTRALIAN PEACEKEEPER DAY

Mr Paul Copeland, National President of the Australian Peacekeeper & Peacemaker Veterans’ Association (APPVA) has called upon the Rudd Federal Government to officially recognise 14 Setepmber as National (Australian) Peacekeeper & Peacemaker (Enforcement) Day.

"The first step for this recognition would be through the proclamation of National (Australian) Peacekeeper Day for the 14th of September each year," Mr Copeland said.
"Secondly, is to adequately recognise those who have served on these operations with appropriate and fitting medallic recognition by the striking of an Australian Peacekeeping (Non-warlike) Service Medal and other Operational medals for Peace Enforcement (Warlike) Operations such as Somalia; Rwanda; Cambodia; East Timor (post INTERFET); Namibia and the 1991 Gulf War.
