Welcome to the April issue of Communiqué

As ANZAC Day is almost upon us, we use this time to honour the memory of those gallant men and women who sacrificed their lives in service to their country. We encourage you to commemorate those who have served and sacrificed their lives in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

Earlier this year the Defence Community, particularly the wider Townsville Community, were impacted by devastating floods. With this crisis came concerns about the recovery of residents’ homes, possessions and the broader economic community. I’d like to extend my thoughts to all North Queensland members; and the Defence and Emergency Services personnel who worked tirelessly in restoring the community. Protecting members assets is part of our mission. It’s a timely reminder that the bank offers our members automatic ‘flood cover’ and ‘new for old contents replacement cover’ through our insurance partner CGU. Members can find out more about our insurance offering in this edition of communique and how we’ve helped some of our Townsville members. I’d also like to extend a thank you on behalf of the Australian Military Bank to all who have donated to our four charity partners (Legacy, Mates4Mates, RSL Defence Care & Soldier On) via our Military Rewards Account.

The Military Rewards Account has made it easy for members to give back to the Defence Community by donating spare change. To date, we’ve generously donated over $150,000 to these charities. In upcoming editions we’ll be focusing on each of these amazing charities – this month we turn our attention to the fantastic work being done by Soldier On.

Finally wishing all those sailors, soldiers, airmen & airwomen selected to represent their service at the ADFAR carnival all the very best.

On behalf of the board, I’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support of Australian Military Bank.

Warm Regards,

John Brooks
