Australian Defence Force Covenant

Queensland Liberal National Party Senator James McGrath, in consultation with defence ex-service organisations, has launched a nation-wide petition calling for the establishment of an Australian Defence Force Covenant to more formally recognise and articulate the valued contribution that current and former members of the Australian Defence Force and their families make and have made to our nation.

We sleep safely in our beds because the men and women of the Australian Defence Force make a contribution like no other, defending our freedoms and liberties at home and abroad. The entire country has a moral obligation to the men and women who serve and have served in our armed forces and their families.

An Australian Defence Force Covenant has in-principle support from defence ex-service organisations including the Defence Force Welfare Association, the Queensland Veteran’s Advisory Council, Legacy, the Alliance of Defence Service Organisations and Mate for Mates.

Watch Senator McGrath’s speech to the Senate launching the petition.
