80-year-old Monty Brown served in Korea - a forgotten war. Monte had to wait 40 years to get his medals and any acknowledgement of his serving. The Government of the day refused to accept that Australians were even there. In the early years after returning he shunned ANZAC Day because he had nothing to show for his deeds. Even an attempted entry into the RSL was met unfavourably. Mr Roy Roads encouraged him to re attempt RSL membership to which Monty has now enjoyed for the past 15 years.
