Our Veterans Forge: Helping service personnel return to civilian life
Returning to civilian life can be an incredibly challenging experience for defence force personnel – especially if you’re leaving for medical reasons.
In Claremont, two local veterans are trying to support our discharged service personnel through structure and self expression using a very traditional art form – Blacksmithing.
Started by Nigel Danson and Paddy Baker, Our Veterans Forge is a not-for-profit initiate to help former ADF personnel reintegrate into the community.
Nigel Danson joined The Weekend to tell us how it all began.
