a gift for the future

"There are several reasons why we decided to leave a gift in our Will to RSLWA. We always try to support local veterans and we have two children currently serving in the Defence force. My grandfather was in the 16th battalion and was a soldier settler post WWI. He was an active member of his local RSL for many years."
