TIMOR AWAKENING: COMMANDOS RETURN 2017
Timor Awakening is a programme of renewal and rehabilitation for Australian and Timorese veterans; with health education, personal and group engagement, pastoral care, mentoring, historical commemoration and more, centred around an 11 day immersion experience in Timor-Leste.

Commandos Return has been developed for members and families of the Australian Special Forces Community connecting with the places and communities where Australian Commandos operated in Timor-Leste.

The phrase "your friends do not forget you" used in propaganda leaflets later in the war, were more than just words for the Commandos who served there. An Identity, a unique human bond and a debt of honour were forged in the hills of Timor.

Today Australian and Timorese veterans walk together with the joint mission of supporting those affected by conflict, ensuring the past is never forgotten and doing all to preserve peace for future generations.

ACAQ is seeking to sponsor and fund two former Commandos to attend the Timor Awakening: Commandos Return 2017 event. ACAQ has setup a gofundme page where those wishing to support the association by way of donations can be made here: xxxxxxxx

This is a fantastic way to support an ex Commando, many of whom gave more than most when their country needed hard men to do a hard job. The ACAQ is seeking $4000 to fund the two ex Commandos who will attend, however if additional funding is raised over this amount it will be used to fund ex Commandos to attend future.
