Dr EMERSON (1:48 PM) —On behalf of the Australian parliament, on 10 June 2004 I was honoured to present 20 local veterans with certificates of appreciation for war service and seven local national servicemen with medals at a ceremony held at the Logan and District RSL Sub-branch. This ceremony was particularly special as we had veterans representing World War II right through to the peacekeeping operations in Iraq. The veterans who received their certificates were: Joseph Auld, Dorothy Ward for Walter Bean, Julie Booth, Neil Bridge, Edwin Butler, Gordon Cashel, Ronald Cruickshanks, Adrian Everett, Colin Fiedler, Keith Graham, Herbert Hall, Bryan Ingram, Gary Low, Elliott Mitchell, Edward Purtell, Colin Saunders, Dorothy Sawrey for Mervyn Sawrey, Eugene Van Doorn, Norman Willis and Colin Deering for Kevin Winter. The national servicemen who were presented with their medals were: Charles Boggs, Charles Brumby, Morris Casey, Bertram Grasmeder, Gary Low, Len Maple and Greg Rennex. Rod Stenholm and Don Morrison also received their Vietnam Logistics, Service and Support Medals. My congratulations go to Ken Heard and his colleagues at the Logan and District RSL Sub-branch for organising a marvellous and moving ceremony.
