There was a small crowd on hand to acknowledge and remember those who served in Iraq and Afghanistan at the cenotaph on Friday, September 11.
The service was organised by the Port Macquarie RSL sub-Branch and is a way to including returned servicemen and women from more recent conflicts.
During the service mayor Peta Pinson presented Jean Lacey with a special 75th anniversary medal in recognition of her service during World War II.
Sub-Branch president and OAM, Greg Laird thanked everyone for attending and said the day was also about acknowledging first responders to incidents involving terrorism.
The annual memorial service acknowledges the efforts of those Australian soldiers in the Afghanistan and Iraq war which were part of the battle against terror activities around the world.
It also commemorates the deaths of more than 2990 people killed when hijacked civilian airliners were used to destroy the World Trade Centre in New York in 2001.
Bugler Ben Simon was also thanked for attending on the day.
