Levin Home for War Veterans will honour veterans who spent their final years at the home by erecting a Field of Remembrance on its front lawn today.

Soldiers from Linton Military Camp erected white crosses in time for Anzac Day services.

War Vets administrator Vicky Prouting said the tribute began in 2015 as a way to commemorate 100 years since World War I and had quickly become an important Anzac tradition.

She said it was a reminder of survival.

"We're proud to be able pay our respects to the many veterans who have been a part of the history of Levin Home for War Veterans and who have helped make us the special community we are today," she said.

"While most Fields of Remembrance remember those who lost their lives on the battlefield, each of our crosses represents the life of a soldier who survived, returned and rebuilt their lives before they passed on.

"I think it's great that we're able to draw attention to their stories, which are often overlooked, but equally important and often just as compelling."

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Enliven's Levin Home for War Veterans, which opened in 1959 to support veterans of war.
