Australian Defence Force Academy receive major commemorative project grant


Senator for the ACT, Zed Seselja has welcomed the Federal Government’s announcement that the Canberra-based University of New South Wales Australian Defence Force Academy has received a grant of $186,364 to create Phase Two of their website 'Australia's Vietnam War.'


The grant is part of six other projects around Australia that have been awarded a total of more than $355,000 under the Saluting Their Service Major Commemorative Grants programme.

“It’s great to see a major project funded in the ACT that recognises the roles played by Australia’s servicemen and women in shaping our nation,” Senator Seselja said today.

“Here in the ACT we are home to an extensive population of currently serving members of the Australian Defence Force and a significant veteran community.

Through this project many people will come to understand the significance of commemoration, and the importance of building links with veterans and serving personnel.

“I congratulate everyone involved in the project for ensuring that the contribution of all those who have served our nation will never be forgotten. It is through such projects that the Australian legacy lives on,” Senator Seselja concluded.
