  1. #1 Troops welcomed home 

    THOUSANDS of people have lined Brisbane streets to welcome home about 700 soldiers who served in Iraq. The soldiers marched to City Hall.

    Defence department personnel estimated about 8,000-10,000 people watched the parade, recognising the contribution made by defence personnel who have served with the Al Muthanna Task Group, The Overwatch Battle Group-West and the Australian Army training team in Iraq.

    ``Today the Australian nation says thank you to you, the men and women of the Australian Defence Force, for your service in Iraq,'' Mr Rudd told the troops. ``You are the proud inheritors of the Anzac tradition which reaches back 100 years.''

    ........This is the welcome our Vietnam soldiers should have received decades ago

    I thank them for their service, bravery, alliance, and assisstance in Iraq. They deserve a heroes welcome for risking their own lives while aiding our fine US military personnel when others would not.
