VAV

The following photographs are a combined effort of our membership in carrying out our responsibilities regarding our Veterans, our heritage and our self worth.

'Operation Visit a Vet' will remain throughout our tenure, and will be improved into the future as 'lessons learnt' in relating to Veterans is absorbed.

To all MBMMC members across Australia who are taking part, enjoy the experience, send us your photos.
