Some of the stories covered in this issue include:

Helping veterans get back to work

When people leave the military, they can often feel that the skills they have learnt during their career don’t match with the skills employers are looking for.

Easier access to DVA treatment

Did you know that many current and former members of the ADF can receive treatment at DVA expense for a range of medical conditions without having to prove these conditions were a result of their military service?

Getting the right decision when you claim

Veterans frequently comment about the outcome of appeals. Why is it that some compensation claims are successful at appeal but not at the primary claim stage?
