G'day Gents,

Please pass the word if you know of anyone looking for people for these or similar roles. Two guys from the same company over East were made redundant today and I am putting feelers out for them.

They may be willing to relocate and also to accept slightly lower type roles. One is ex RAEME and the other worked for me as a Workshop Manager here at Regal. I would vouch for both of them.

If anyone is interested or may have something available anywhere in Australia, give me their contact details and I'll pass them on to these guys.

Cheers Jono

Jon O'Grady

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.

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.
