For Aussies and New Zealanders, the Battle of Long Tan is the highlight of their wartime experience in Viet Nam, a singular event in which an outnumbered force of ANZAC infantry and artillery held off more than 1500 Viet Cong, inflicting serious casualties while suffering relatively few casualties of their own. Over the years, Vietnamese authorities have quietly permitted groups of Australian and New Zealand veterans to return on special occasions to commemorate the battle at the site near the beach resort town of Vung Tau.

The situation has stirred considerable comment, not unlike the controversy surrounding the appointment of former Sen. Bob Kerrey to be Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the new Fulbright University Vietnam.
