A Word From Your Patron
Inaugural Patron of the ADF Cadets, General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK AC(Mil) CVO MC, has introduced himself to the more than 28,000 cadets and their families in a new video message. The Navy, Army and Air Force Cadets are Defence’s leading youth development programs, supporting 13- to 18-year-olds through activities that help them thrive in a team environment, improve communication skills and become responsible members of the local community. The former Chief of the Defence Force and Governor-General of Australia will visit units across the country to support the cadets and raise awareness of the experiences that the programs provide. “I’m honoured to once again put on a uniform to support our young people through activities that help them thrive and become responsible members of their local community,” Sir Peter said.
