Our community isn’t necessarily about reminiscing about service times or who has ‘done what’, it is about moving forward, re-engaging and inspiring young veterans to achieve and succeed beyond active duty.
Young Veterans was started as a movement by veteran mates who recognised that there was a gap between recent veterans and those of past conflicts. These mates couldn’t stand by and watch the same issues that plagued the veterans of the Vietnam War happen again.
Over the past few years our community has grown rapidly across Australia, offering activities, fundraising and social opportunities for our comrades. The key to our growth is the agility and preparedness to go beyond the normal business rules, breaking the mould of previous ESOs and actually going to where the support is needed.
