Smith and Marine Corps Base Hawaii commemorate ANZAC Day, Saturday, at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl. The 10 a.m. ceremony was hosted by Australian Counsul-General David Binns and Jane Coombs of the New Zealand Embassy. ANZAC Day began as a way to honor those in the Australia-New Zealand Army Corps who died 100 years ago in World War I at the 1915 battle for Gallipoli, Turkey, and has since been expanded to honor all service members in the Australia-New Zealand Army Corps.
