The human costs of war for those who fight.
Share your story about how war service has impacted your life or that of an ADF member close to you.

My son was an officer in the Army for ten years and is now a secondary teacher in legal studies in Brisbane. I support war powers reform. After the election if the ALP wins I hope for some action. It is not likely we will be then deployed in Ukraine. If the LNP wins we could send a media reported ADF contingent perhaps under a new Operation Freedom targeted at the haters of Russia. Another contingent could go to Taiwan targeted to those who support regime change in China with the KMT back in charge with US support. I suspect Penny Wong sees the issue as executive power as exercised by sovereign nations. I prefer the view of the late Malcolm Fraser who exercised power while understanding most of the time the relevance of principle. Keep up the good work.
