Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, commemorated
by both countries on 25 April every year to honor the members of the Australian and
New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during
World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military
operations for their countries
