Since 1990, over
290,000 brave men and women have served our country in the Australian Defence
Force. From wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to peacekeeping missions in East
Timor, Bougainville, Cambodia, the Solomon Islands, Somalia and Rwanda, our
veterans have undertaken extraordinary tasks in defence of our nation.
At Soldier On, we recognise that throughout these operations, the ADF and greater National Security Community have worked side by side. This is why we now also offer support to Australian Federal Police, Australian Border Force, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and other security agencies.
Our aim is to help build resilient individuals capable of developing and expanding meaningful connection with family, community and employers.
‘Since reaching out to Soldier On for help, I have been receiving counselling…I [was assisted with securing] a full-time job and have been performing to a high standard, and I am pursuing tertiary education part time thanks to a scholarship sponsored by Soldier On.
