This message, or an updated version of it, will in the near future appear on our community site on "heaven address". At the moment their software does not cater for this.

 

I've put some miscellaneous material below the message.

 

If anybody can update the conflict figures I would appreciate it.

Australia Veterans Memorial

 

My initial reason for approaching the “heaven address” web site was for purposes of establishing an “Online Funeral Notices Service” for all of Australia’s Veterans.

 

Whilst John Howard from Wodonga has updated the Vietnam Veterans’ “Mortality Files” for some years now I upload the updated files to my web site every month.

 

Calculations based on figures contained in DVA’s annual report show that 20,300 veterans died in the financial year ending 30 June 2010. This averages approximately 390 per week. Most of these are World War 2 era veterans. These figures are way in excess of what John processes now.

 

DVA have twice declined to provide these details. Approximately 800 funeral businesses are linked to “heaven address”. This is approximately one third of these businesses in Australia. Once systems have been redesigned these entries can flow directly from the funeral businesses.

 

“heaven address” is an “Online Memorial site” so it offers the veteran community much more including the ability to reach out into the general community who appear to be very appreciative of their veterans. In many cases veterans are family members – fathers/mothers, grandfathers/grandmothers, uncles/aunties, brothers/sisters.

 

To set this in place for future generations I’ve approached Ted Chitham who runs the National Secretariat for the Royal Australian Regiment Corporation from Enoggera Army Camp in Brisbane. The Regiment comprises all the ARA Infantry Battalions and is by far the largest of the unit type Ex Service Organisations. Ted is an achiever with a distinguished military career and a person of absolute integrity.

 

Ted and I will be meeting with Derek Goh from “heaven address” in the near future. There is enormous potential for veterans in using the “heaven address” web site but there is much to be done to achieve that. In conjunction with Ted and Derek I’ll be trying to get this project established. I’d ask for your patience.

 

Email me if you have concerns.

I'm experimenting with the sections below in this table.
Hyperlinks should all work.
