“Since 1999 - one Australian Veteran has committed suicide every 2 weeks.
Our Vets would rather fight the Taliban - than deal with Government bureaucrats and politicians. Give our Vets an automatic Health Gold Card and hold a Royal Commission into Veterans’ Affairs - and begin to fix the problem.
So why has Labor and the Liberals refused to support our Veterans?
Mr Turnbull and Shorten - stand up for our Veterans.
Live up to the ANZAC legend – not off it!” said Senator Lambie.
