Gratitude in Action: Saluting Our Supporters 2023

In the ever-evolving landscape of the digital age, where information flows freely but often without direction or purpose, there stand entities that focus on bridging the gap between need and provision. Frontline is one such beacon, guiding Australian veterans, ex-service members, and active personnel through a quagmire of information, offering clarity and precision.

Yet, every beacon needs a source of light. For Frontline, that luminosity comes from the unwavering support of its donors.

It’s not just about financial contributions. It’s about believing in a cause. It’s about understanding the value of genuine, relevant, and timely information for our diggers, both on and off the battlefield. It’s about being a part of a larger mission – a mission that has, since 2001, been committed to ensuring that no member of our brave community feels lost in the vast expanse of the digital realm.

Each donation we receive is a testament to trust. Trust in our vision, our commitment, and our relentless pursuit of excellence. And it’s only right that such trust is recognised and celebrated.

Today, we’re honoured to present to you our dedicated page that showcases these pillars of strength. We invite you to visit Frontline’s Honour Roll – a space where gratitude meets action. Here, we’ve listed the names of our supporters, those individuals and entities that have chosen to stand with us, shoulder to shoulder, as we march forward.

To our donors: Your belief fuels our journey. Your trust shapes our path. And your support ensures that Frontline remains robust, reliable, and ever-resilient. From the depth of our hearts, we thank you. It’s backers like you who remind us daily of the worthiness of our mission and the importance of our duty.

As we continue to serve, know that your contributions are not just logged entries in our accounts. They are cherished reminders of a community that cares, believes, and supports.

Together, we forge ahead. And together, we ensure that Frontline remains ever bright.

FRONTLINE our new website.

Our revamped website now titled Frontline will be back online from Tuesday afternoonWhile we’ve adopted a new name, our members will not notice many changes with the majority occurring behind the scenes. Notably:

  • The forum has been discontinued.
  • We’ve enhanced our security measures for a safer browsing experience.
  • Our official website address is www.frontline.asn.au.
  • For any queries, feel free to email me at [email protected].

Our core mission remains unaltered: delivering vital news and information to veterans, including current events, obituaries, and still an opportunity to comment.
