The new Veteran Card will be available to all veterans as a practical demonstration of respect and recognition for their service and gives business owners the opportunity to practically demonstrate thanks and respect for those who have served.
Launched last week by the Federal Government, the new Card scheme and covenant pack gives members access to discounts and other offers as practical demonstration of thanks and respect.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Australians had a great deal of respect for those who had served our nation in the uniforms of the Navy, Army and Air Force.
“The broader recognition package we’ve developed which includes the Veterans Covenant, the lapel pin and card, is a way each and every one of us, including the business community, can say to our veterans ‘thank you for your service’,” he said.
