Support our wounded soldiers through Soldier On
Soldier On is about Australians coming together to show their support for our wounded. It’s about telling our diggers that we will always have their back; that we will remember those who have come home, as well as those who have died. It’s about giving the wounded the dignity they deserve and the chance to do and be whatever they choose. It’s about ANZAC spirit and mateship and all Australians keeping their promise to take care of our wounded warriors.
