Great post. I have had the privilege to have David Sabben give presentations to my unit over the years - the last one in January this year. It is incredible hearing about the battle of Long Tan first hand from one who was there.
Excellent vid - thanks for posting. Always love watching the Vietnam vets go back to Vietnam and walk the terrain they fought on.
Morrie Stanley is still a legend over here, one of my favorite books as well.Nice link on the arty scenes filmed in NZ...In -3 Celsius conditions.Nice one Paul

That was quite unique with the vets returning to the area!
