What Makes the Relationship so Special Between America and Australia?

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Features, Special Reports, The Real State

In my first trip to New York City in 2002 I was in awe at the size of the city. I was in awe of the size of the country and the number of US flags that were hanging on balconies, in windows and out of car windows. Being Australian was received well and I found Americans to be extremely hospitable and patriotic people.

Visiting Ground Zero was haunting and an experience I will never forget – I was there for the first anniversary of the event that changed the world. I had plenty of time to think about Australian and US links and the bond that we seem to have as people. I know that I could write pages on this but I thought of just a few points that make our relationship as special as it is – despite John Howard being the Prime Minister of Australia for 11 years (I was never a fan).

Australia and the US have fought alongside each other in the following wars:

1. World War 1

2. World War 11

3. Korean War

4. Vietnam War

5. Gulf War 1

6. Afghanistan War on Terror

7. Gulf War 11

This is far from a comprehensive list of all the times and ways that our country’s have collaborated and worked together. Despite our own personal beliefs about the virtue of war I’m sure we all share the same level of respect for those men and women who have fought under our flags and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Simon Turner was part of the Australian contingent of coalition forces at the beginning of the war in Afghanistan – his experience, discipline and expertise is invaluable for our company and his experiences with US forces were positive, friendly and in the spirit that our two counties have come to enjoy.

Hi Michael from the warm urban waters of Davis Islands just off of downtown Tampa, Florida. Great article and I have enjoyed some of your Modern Architectual Gems listed via your Twitter Account. I might have another way for our countries to continue in its spirit of cooperation and trade with a unique property.
I set up a Twitter account for this project which is here on Davis Islands – Twitter ID = D_Islands_Life and has Pictures – web address of the listing is here http://mfr.mlxchange.com/Pub/EmailView.asp?r=18….

Davis Islands is 40 minutes from the white sands of the world famous Clearwater Beach, in the heart of the cultural center of Tampa, 30 minutes from Moffett Cancer Treatment Center, 20 minutes from Busch Gardens and 60 Minutes from Disney World/Universal Studios Orlando/Sea World.
We have a saying here in Florida which I think we creatively swiped from the Bahamians and that is the Islands Life is at its best when you are surrounded by your friends and family in your respite at sunset. This project's Architecture emanates from the spirit of the Islands life in design and function. With favorable currency exchange here's an opportunity to own a brand new respite at sunset.
