Pension Officers / Advocates

Pension Officers / Advocates for this Generation of Veterans, Serving and Ex-Serving Members of the Australian Defence Force

There are NOW 61,000 young veterans (1999 onwards) and Serving and Ex Serving members of the ADF that need your help with claims.

The Vietnam Vets of the RSL's Sub-Branches have done a magnificent job with Pensions and Advocacy for many many years. But time has finally taken its toll of them (55.000 Vietnam Veterans, 1965-1972 may be aged 65 Years plus?) And are finally retiring (to be with families and loved ones) from the Pension / Advocacy positions,

So you may soon find that there will be NOBODY available to help you ALL? So what you can do about this future situation? "Get your Members (Veteran and ADM recipients alike) to APPLY to become TIP Trained Pension Officers / Advocates to HELP your members in the future to handle the inevitable pension / advocacy enquiries"?

Good Luck!

Below I have put in the "Good Guts" about "HOW" it ALL works? But it is UP to you to make it happen.

Sick Report: "Tubes" Gerheardt RA


Hello everyone,

This is yet another very difficult message for me to write considering what has happened over the past fortnight with the tragic
loss of a very special friend in Skeeta Ryan.

During the course of letting everyone know that we had lost Skeeta Ryan I received a message from Len Stainer advising me that
Tubes Gerhardt was very sick after being diagnosed with a brain tumour and that he was preparing for Chemo and radiation treatment.

Although I had contact details for Tubes after I spoke to him a few years ago after we received news that he had died, thankfully it
wasn't Tubes who had passed away. I was unable to contact Tubes to get an insight into his condition and therefore I was not going
to put out any false or misleading information.

Soldier On Cycling Perth


Soldier On Cycling Perth is up and going.

Being run through Soldier On Perth.

The plan is to ride once a month at this stage, starting next Saturday the 19th of July .

We are looking at getting current and ex service personnel including people who have an interest in supporting Soldier On, to come along for a spin, group ride and coffee.

Whether you ride your sons Mountain bike or a state of the art Tour De France race bike we want you all to come along .

Start time will be 10am

With the location to be released in the next few days, but will be not far from the Old Raffles Hotel in Applecross to allow for access for people north and south of the river.

The ride won't be a sprint session or hill repeats, but a casual ride with some good mates !

Hope to see you there , and welcome in the start of Soldier On Cycling Perth.

We will be posting further info during the week to help assist some of you that may never have group ridden before.
