Logic20/20 Presents: 5th Annual Seattle ANZAC Dawn Service Logic20/20 is proud to sponsor the 5th annual ANZAC Dawn Service, to be held in Seattle at Lake Union Park. ANZAC Day, April 25th, is one of the most important national days of pride for Australian and New Zealanders, wherever they live across world. Although originating as a commemorative dawn service to remember the fateful morning in 1915 when Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) soldiers landed to fierce opposition on the Gallipoli (Turkey) coast during World War I, it’s grown to become a significant national day of remembrance for all lives lost in military or peacekeeping operations. The Day also commemorates the massive casualties within the Turkish community during the eight month battle of Gallipoli.
