AS Anzac Day approaches Ocean Grove RSL members are encouraging the community to support local veterans by buying a badge.
Brad Clarke and Russell Denhert were two of the members selling badges in The Terrace in the lead-up to national commemorations.
“The RSL supports many different veterans and it’s the only real fund-raiser we have,” he said.
“We’ve got to make sure we commemorate and remember what all veterans have done for us.”
Mr Clarke and Mr Denhert are two of the younger RSL members selling badges around town.
Mr Clarke was in Royal Australian Armoured Corps for 30 years and served in Iraq from 2007 to 2008.
He’s lived in Ocean Grove for seven years and is still in the Army Reserve.
Mr Denhert was in the Army Reserve and served for AFP in East Timor in 2000 and 2006, as a UN policeman.
