Veterans Covenant and Card
Australian Veterans’ Covenant and card coming soon
The Australian Defence Veterans’ Covenant was announced by the government on 27 October last year.
The Covenant encourages Australia to recognise and acknowledge the unique nature of military service, and support veterans and their families.
The Covenant includes an oath, which the Australian people will be encouraged to take at community commemorative events, such as Remembrance Day.
The new Veteran Card and an Australian Veteran Lapel Pin and a Reservist Lapel Pin underpin the Covenant.
The intention of the Covenant is to provide employers, businesses, local communities, and veteran and sporting organisations the opportunity to commit to supporting veterans and their families.
Cards will be issued automatically – first to new DVA ‘customers’ followed automatically to existing DVA health card holders (Gold or White) and concession card holders (Orange).
The new-look card will be issued automatically over coming months, along with a Veteran Lapel Pin and Oath as part of a phased roll-out.
