Episode 6 – Supporting Younger Veterans

Posted on: Mon 10 Jan 2022

This 7-part project produced for the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia in partnership with RSL SA/NT & BH, Plympton Veterans Centre and Service Voices 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, partners/families and organisations.
