It’s a great pleasure to be joining forces with Soldier On to support their important work in helping better connect the community with the experiences of Australian service personnel and their families. The Australian Government’s Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, where I work, is proud to be a pledge partner of this great organisation, and excited to be working with Soldier On to bring talented veterans and spouses into the workforce through its intern program. More personally, with one of my sons embarking on a defence career, it’s reminded me how important it is we ensure we reach out to those who have completed their service, but still have so much to give. Joining March On is a great way to show this support. From 15-25 April I'll be joining a team walking the 96km of the Kokoda Track, aiming to raise money towards Soldier On's $1m target. Thanks to everyone for the best wishes and generous contributions.
