Having been in the Army from the time I left School until I was medically discharged 13 years later due to injuries caused by my Service. I was in a downward spiral of Alcohol abuse to try and numb the chronic pain from my injuries.
Mates 4 Mates have provided me with the necessary advice and support both I needed as well as my immediate family. Without their support I doubt if I would still have a family who still wants them in their life.
Participating in these activities with fellow servicemen and women allows those of us discarded by the ADF to once again be part of a team, the Motto - "Unbreakable Bonds, Unshakable Support" rings true with every Activity/event that is arranged by the Support Staff.
Having regular contact with Staff and other Mates from Mates 4 Mates is truly life changing.
Please support my cause, I am self funding my travel to and from this activity so that more $$ can be used by Mates 4 Mates to assist other Mates who also require assistance.
