Ryman Healthcare has published the sixth edition of Stories of Service – a special Anzac Day commemorative book. 

Stories of Service contains the recollections of more than 60 Ryman residents in New Zealand and Australia who fought or served in conflicts ranging from World War II, Korea, Malaya and Vietnam.

It also includes the stories of those who served in peacetime, driven by that sense of purpose and service that compels individuals to serve their country.

The team at Ryman is incredibly proud of our residents, and we thank them for giving us the privilege of recording their stories.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. We will remember them.
