Operation Legacy Australia Kokoda Challenge 2017

 

Legacy youth and ADF personnel have rallied together in facing an uphill battle

 

A contingent of more than 60 special young Australians yesterday returned from an epic journey like no other. The Legacy youth, mentored by Australia Defence Force (ADF) personnel trekked the Kokoda Trail to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Kokoda Campaign.

 

Legacy youth are young men and women who have lost a parent due to the parent’s service in the Australian Defence Force, and whose families are provided support by Legacy.

 

A military camera team from the ADF’s 1st Joint Public Affairs Team accompanied the group and collected some great vision and imagery for your use.


Please find a media release attached.
