Supporting Younger Veteran Project
Posted on: Mon 20 Dec 2021
This 7 part CBAA project is designed to increase awareness of some of our younger Veterans’ issues and the services that are available to assist them back into a fulfilling civilian life when they leave the military.
Throughout the series, we follow contemporary Veteran Matt Bunt as he transitions out of the Army into life as a civilian. We intersperse the series with vignettes from other contemporary Veterans and organisations.
Episode 1 of 7. Contributors: Matthew (Matt) Bunt (Veteran); Nathan Bolton (Veteran); Janice Silby (DVA DC SA); Jeff Yates OAM (RSL SA/NT Advocate); Chris Mathias (President Millicent RSL)
