We work alongside other government agencies and veterans’ groups to:
- support those with Qualifying Service — as well as their family and whānau
- celebrate their courage, comradeship, and commitment
- commemorate their loss and sacrifice.
We do this by:
- providing support to those with Qualifying Service, their family and whānau, so they can be well at home, at work, and in their communities
- helping coordinate commemorative activities
- maintaining over 180 Service Cemeteries throughout NZ
- working with other organisation that also support and advocate for veterans.
