Welcome to the NSAA ACT Branch Inc

The National Servicemen’s Association of Australia is currently Australia's second largest ex-military service organization just behind the RSL in total membership numbers.

Vietnam was a war that divided the Australian nation and some sections of the community reviled and abused Diggers in uniform, including National Servicemen. On top of that, those who had served in Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and Australia, although giving up two years of their lives, were not eligible for the repatriation benifits available to active servicemen. The late Barry Vicary founded the National Servicemen's Association in Toowomba on November 28, 1987 to seek a better deal for these Nashos. Later, he widened the Association to include the 1950's call up.

The ACT Branch Inc of the National Servicemen’s Association was formed to assist all ex National Servicemen from both schemes and to promote the issues we feel should be brought to the attention of the Federal Government and other National bodies.

We hope that you will find this web page easy to navigate and that you are able to find out what your friends are doing around Australia and be assisted to make contact with them through the links currently in our pages and those to be included at some later date. 

Through “Membership Form Page” you will be able to apply for Membership in the National Servicemen’s Association of Australia ACT Branch Inc,  or in any other State/Territory Branch/Sub-Branch anywhere in Australia.
