Professor Lisa Jackson-Pulver
I wanted to be able to stand there with pride, in a uniform, in service of my country.
Uncle Charlie Mundine
I hope that I've affected some non-Aboriginal people when I was in the Army about what they were actually defending.
Uncle Cliff Daylight
It's not about fighting for your own mob, it's about fighting for your country.
Uncle David Williams
It's still country, Australia still belongs to us and I use the plural.
Uncle Harry Allie
I was always aware of that proud history, of serving country.
Uncle John Kinsela
You know, when you're getting shot at, your mates next to you, you don't care what colour they are.
Uncle Norm Newlin
The army was what I aspired to be. I liked the slouch hat, I thought it was great, I used to wear it with a bit of panache.
Uncle Rob Bryant
When I put the uniform on, I represent Australia and I represent my contribution to Australia.
Uncle Vic Simon
I'm walking along and I see a poster of this bloke pointing at me… We Want You!
Uncle Villington Lui
When you serve your country, you're doing something for your country.
