Thank you, Brisbane Times, for sharing this with the wider community.I am lucky that I do not suffer such illnesses from my service, but I have close mates who have taken their lives fighting this government department called DVA.DVA has caused the suicides of so many young man & woman.-----------Sick of ill-informed people claiming that we can take refugees at 50,000 a year but we cannot look after our very own sons & daughters who have served in our great defence force, & other EMS, Police, Fire fighters, Paramedics, Nurses etc, tow truck drivers who have to recover vehicles where people have been fatally injured in. SES members who search for body parts at murder scenes or dump sites.The more the general media run stories like this the more pressure we can place on our jellyfish politicians to fix Australia first.
For the young going into the defence force it’s better of getting a trade under your belt , then if you want to continue, you can move over to frontline, if you want to get out after your time you have a good qualification under your belt, I think you’ll find it’s the combat personnel who have a hell of a time once they are out, especially if they’ve been in combat, and yes there should be mandatory support for all vets to help them back into society so they can find and be actively involved with the community, its very hard for all involved and not forgetting their families, god bless them
It's straight up depression!!You are in a team environment day and night, always with a group and then after discharge you are alone. You lose contact with your mates and just spiral down hill......
Also you can't find work because you have barely any qualifications.. but I'm guessing this would also be rife in the Police force as well.
It appears to me that in Oz we have Two of the most Unifying mechanisms : Centrelink & Medicare. Therefore, I’m happy to celebrate the 26th of January, because it lead to these important government instrumentalities, something most other countries do not offer to the same degree & for that alone the indigenous shouldn’t “rock the boat”, because other “colonialists”, eg, Indonesia & China, would not have developed this degree of generosity & support.

Bill said in the video," we have enough public holidays in Australia". Spoken like a boss. So who do we trust, Malcolm the boss or Bill the boss. 2 conservative parties.
My best mate, a guy I'd happily call a brother is indigenous. He and his family don't like Australia day but they wouldn't change the date, it simply has different meaning to them and they acknowledge what it means to the wider Australian community and wouldn't change it.
These days the Dollar is king,, the economy is not as good as advertised, Working families are trying to cope with the never-ending cost of living.Most of the big icons still curry the 70's outlook on business and by doing so neglected to leverage their size against the total price of the goods on sale.all they really care about is the shareholders' dividend. This time this outlook is coming to bite them back,
I'll admit I've never been able to afford to shop in places like David Jones. Would only ever go to Myers to get Santa photos done.
Department stores just don't offer anything unique enough. In the past they were operating off the fact that it was convenient to be able to buy different types of goods under one roof. Now we have many more different avenues where we can purchase the goods we want.Many of the kinds of goods that the department stores sell you can now either buy directly from the manufacturer online or in their own stores (like branded clothes) or from discount stores (eg makeup from Sephora).Kmart works because they don't sell very many branded goods and when they do they are generally the cheapest.Personally I give Myers about 5 years. David Jones should last longer but the business will change drastically,
Why don’t they Cancel every celebration that we have that will make theme happen Cancel all the all benefits they get Because you can’t change what happened 200 years ago
What happened to the midnight oil singer he sang about. how badly the aboriginals had been treated what did he do for them when he got into parliament didly squat
I wonder if the Leader of the Greens should resign? He has no interest in indigenous issues. He would rather virtue signal and be a party of grievance rather than substance
