Absolutely.The US,Australia and other great nations have borne more than their share of the burden of keeping this dangerous,sometimes even *savage*,world a little safer over the last 100+ years,that's for sure.I don't know if you've ever visited the Tomb of the Unknown at Arlington,or seen any of the many videos on youtube,but if not it's something that can bring a tear to the eye.I've never been there (it's on my bucket list) but the videos I've seen are very powerful indeed.And Australia's "Tomb",I'm sure,evokes equally powerful emotions...sadness and pride topping the list...for Aussies.

And to naturalman,regarding your response to my original post...yes,those words do seem very respectful and appropriately solemn and I can see why Aussies might see them as fitting for your Tomb.I don't know how things are in Australia but here in the US we long ago stopped associating gratitude and respect with the leaders of *our* "Labour" Party.It seems possible that that's not the case Down Under.
