The Returned & Services League of Australia (RSL) is pleased our persistent and forceful advocacy to Ministers and Committees of the Federal Parliament over more than a decade to establish and maintain a long term naval shipbuilding capability in Australia has been heeded. "The decision to build all twelve of the new class of submarines in Australia is welcome news," said RSL National President Rear Admiral (Ret'd) Ken Doolan.

The RSL cares for veterans of all ages and their families. National President, RADM Ken Doolan says, "This ANZAC Day we remember the fallen but are focused on supporting the living veterans." People are discharging from the ADF (Australian Defence Force) and losing contact with the RSL without realising they are entitled to support. Every State and Territory branch can connect former ADF members with free advocacy services. A network of 1,500 sub-Branches provides easy access to help no matter how remote the location.
