Serving Country for 60,000 Years

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a long-standing tradition of fighting for Country, in all conflicts and operations in which the nation's military forces have been involved, and they continue to serve with great honour in the Australian Defence Force. The 'Serving Country for 60,000 Years' collection commemorates the story of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' service in the defence of Australia, dating back to before Federation to modern times.
