ANZAC Day celebrates the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, or ANZAC. It falls on the anniversary of ANZAC troops landing on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, which kicked off Australia and New Zealand’s involvement in World War I. Today Anzac Day honors veterans and those who lost their lives serving in the military, particularly during World War I. It also celebrates the army corps and their contribution to freedom in the South Pacific.
