Share Your Story

Do you have a story in your heart that you want to share?

I need your help, I am interested in hearing from veterans with a variety of lived experiences, whether retired, currently serving in the Defence force, former members, or family members and support people including our entertainers.

From enlisting in the Australian Defence Force, to the personal challenges involved in training, to assisting someone during recent floods or life after the uniform, transition from defence force and challenges faced during this time. Your war service or personal experiences that will take readers through your lived experiences, providing understanding, encouragement and hope to others.

If you share another person’s story, such as a family member, friend or colleague, I encourage you to seek their permission before doing so. I will not publish submissions sharing the story of another living person without that person’s consent.

Please share your story with a word limit of around 800 words, which will then be reviewed before publication on the network and available on our website.  Please, no PDF files. I aim to publish all shared stories; however, some stories may not be able to be posted due to the nature of the content.

I know from experience there is a great interest in veterans’ stories. Please give it a go and email your story to me at [email protected]
