.@AustralianArmy veteran Peter Liston always felt an “entrepreneurial itch,” but it was the skills & experience gained during service that gave him the confidence to step out on his own. Since transitioning, he has founded 3 organisations. https://t.co/sopFvqV6Im. #TYFYS https://t.co/VEyK9GnOWF

Today we mark the start of the Battle of Menin Road in which the 1st & 2nd Divisions of I ANZAC Corps participated. Together the divisions sustained more than 5,000 casualties in the action, one of whom was Private Walter Edward Peake, who was KIA at just 23. #LestWeForget #TYFYS https://t.co/qB7EggXvW8

As I say often, employing a veteran is good for business. It's great to see so many Australian businesses recognising the skills and experience our veterans have, with over 300 organisations signing the Veterans’ Employment Commitment. Sign today: https://t.co/vYu9Ppjo0v https://t.co/35N5QiDgFW

Deeply sorry to learn my friend @JohnJMcVeigh has resigned as Member for Groom. A passionate advocate for his community & regional Australia: John has displayed honesty, loyalty & integrity in a profession that sometimes lacks all three! Go well mate.

Air Commodore Gary Martin's job is to look after our @AusAirForce cadets. In his words, "cadets are our future". Watch his story and why he is passionate about the future of the Air Force. #OurPeople #TYFYS https://t.co/EcNvtEDCJu
