Between 1951 and 1972, 287,000 young Australian men were called up for service in the Navy, Army and Air Force. A total of 212 National Servicemen died on active service - two in Borneo and 210 in Vietnam. In 2002 the National Servicemen's Association of Australia and the Australian War Memorial (AWM) agreed that a National Service memorial be built at the AWM in Canberra. Designed by architects Johnson Pilton Walker, the memorial is a dignified and striking tribute to all National Servicemen. Set in its own garden at the right-hand side of the AWM entrance, the memorial bears the inscription: "Dedicated to all Australian National Servicemen and in memory of those who died".
