Grants will salute veterans' service
VETERANS' organisations on the Coffs Coast have shared in $705,892 Australian Government funding for “Saluting Their Service” grants to commemorate our wartime history and honour those who have served and continue to serve Australia in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
The Minister for Veterans' Affairs, Warren Snowden, said commemorative projects play a major role in encouraging Australians, young and old, to learn about wartime heritage.
“Community and ex-service organisations can also apply for funding to support significant anniversaries of wartime events,” Mr Snowden said.
“Saluting Their Service grants provide funding to help communities build and maintain memorials, capture the wartime history of their towns and preserve memorabilia for future generations.”
