Insecticide Deceit: The Truth about Insecticide Use at Nui Dat

Over the last two years I have undertaken a study on the use of insecticides at the 1 ATF base at Nui Dat, the home of the Australian and the New Zealand fighting force in Vietnam. The most important finding of this study is that much of the truth about insecticide use by 1 ATF has never been revealed. (John Mordike). ....more

Double risk of leukaemia for Vietnam vets

NEW Zealand's Vietnam War veterans are almost twice as likely to suffer from a common form of adult leukaemia than the general public, a new study has found.

The Otago University study found veterans, who may have been exposed to toxic chemicals including Agent Orange when deployed in Phuoc Tuy province, have a 91 per cent higher incidence of chronic lymphatic leukaemia (CLL). ....more


Petitioning the Australian War Memorial

The Official War History's account of the Vietnam war's Agent Orange controversy is wildly misleading and insulting to the campaigning Vietnam veterans.
We are petitioning the Australian War Memorial to commission a new and true account.
Here are a short, medium and full version of the reasons for the petition.

If you have not signed the petition please go to: http://chn.ge/1c6ZtVr

Petition Updates

The following documents include details of how our petition is going, as well as important argument as to why you should promote this site as often as you are able.

For the Veteran Community, ( including their families ).

We represent former, as well as, current members of the defence force, and their families.

We represent veterans of all conflicts from World War II to Afghanistan, including Peacekeeping and Peacemaking Missions

We have many years experience helping with claims in all of the Military Compensation schemes, with fully trained 'TIP' qualified Pensions officers.

If your initial claim has been unreasonably rejected we have experienced Advocates to prepare and present an appeal to the Veterans Review Board.

Should an appeal to the Veterans Review Board be unsuccessful we can, for entitled veterans, arrange legal representation and legal aid for Administrative Appeals Tribunal hearings.

We offer assistance to families of veterans including War-Widows.

These services are free.

Neither is there any obligation to join our Federation although you would be welcome to do so.

 About Us

The Vietnam Veterans Federation of Australia (VVFA) and its affiliated partners Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers & Peacemakers Association of Australia (VVPPAA) is dedicated to the welfare of ALL service and ex-service personnel and their families. We have no other aim. Our organisation is made up of volunteers who chose to help veterans in need. If you are a sick veteran, and you suspect your sickness may have been caused by your war service, we invite you to consult one of our trained volunteers who man our Branches and Sub-Branches throughout all States of Australia.

We rely upon continued membership and your valued donations to keep our offices doors open throughout Australia. Many of our offices have regular fund raising events and/or raffles, so why not attend and give your support where you can. .......READ MORE

Confused about this organisation and other Vietnam Veterans associations ?

The best explanation is that we are the VIETNAM VETERANS FEDERATION of AUSTRALIA INC. We have branches in all States of Australia and the ACT. Our New South Wales branch, located at Granville, is also the Federations Head Office, and we are incorporated as the VIETNAM VETERANS PEACEKEEPERS & PEACEMAKERS ASSOCIATION of AUSTRALIA (NEW SOUTH WALES BRANCH) Inc.

We have no affiliation with the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia incorporated in Victoria. The St. Mary's Outpost is not part of our Federation. Several years ago we disaffiliated from this body and formed our own FEDERATION, and we were joined shortly thereafter by other States unhappy with the National Council of the VVAA.

A Word from the NSW Membership Officer. Two Members in the One Family. From time to time we receive calls asking why households with more than one Association member receive a copy of the quarterly Journal for each member. Whilst we thank you for your concern that costs are duplicated for these households we do have an obligation to ensure each member receives the Journal. Additionally, our data system does not have the capacity to single out individuals who do not want the Journal. May we suggest that you consider distributing any spare copies to veterans or ex-service persons who may not yet be a member of our Association. RAN/RAAF Service NumbersOccasionally we receive a query relating to incorrect service numbers. The appropriate field on our computer system does not allow for letters, only numbers. This means that service numbers for the RAN members are minus the “R” and RAAF members the “A”.
