Formation of HQ Company, 1 ATF Association (Nui Dat)

Following a large reunion of HQ Coy, 1 ATF personnel at Sawtell Beach Caravan Park during the week of Vietnam Veterans Remembrance/Long Tan Day, August 2000, the formation of a HQ Company, 1 ATF Association was actively supported. All those Vietnam Veterans who served in HQ Coy, 1 ATF, Nui Dat and D&E platoon, Nui Dat, who are interested in joining this Association are invited to contact Eddie Tricker by one of the following means. By letter to Box 5147, Studfield Post Office, Wantirna South, Victoria, 3152; by telephone on (03) 9801 7586 or by e-mail to etricker*ozemail.com.au

Australian Vietnam Veterans Mortality Listing Web Site (Unfortunately this link is no longer available)

This site contains a detailed database listing names of veterans who have passed away since return from Vietnam.  As successive Governments over many years have tended to ignore the sad effects of war, we feel it is important to ascertain and classify causes of death for Vietnam Veterans.

The list is as complete as we have been able to make it, and contains over 3000 names. However, there are sure to be names missing. Please contact us if you have any information at all that may help to make the list complete.  Deaths reported through the VVAA Report of the Death of a Vietnam Veteran will be forwarded to this site.

Long Tan Bursary

The bursary has been established to help needy children of Vietnam veterans meet the cost of full-time tertiary education and help them get the formal qualifications and skills needed to pursue their chosen career.  For more information, go to the hyperlinked DVA site.

Overseas or Remote Membership

You can join the Association as a member of our remote and overseas members' Virtual Sub Branch. You must be a veteran or the descendent of a veteran - and we will check! Pay dues electronically, and receive information via email. This service was established due to the number of enquiries we receive from the United States and remote areas of Australia.

What does it cost?  About $US12 per year!  Exact cost depends on the exchange rate between the US and Aussie dollars.

Next Generation

The children of Vietnam veterans, the Next Generation are mobilising to share information, experiences and help one another.  For those in the Lismore area, Hunter, Central Coast and the Taree/ Manning, while those in other states should contact the relevant  State Branch.
