Yesterday we had a meeting with the Hon Peter Dutton MP, Minister for Defence, to pitch the SMEAC vision to him and to seek government support and backing.

A very successful meeting with a lot of interest and support shown and continued engagement and future follow up meetings indicated. He was particularly impressed with how far we have come with SMEAC and the continued commitment of our board and members.

We are keen to now continue this engagement to secure support to take our vision through to fruition.

In A NUTSHELL
SMEAC Inc is a veteran run not for profit association dedicated to Reconnecting, Reintegrating, Retraining veterans by providing Meaningful and PURPOSEFUL Employment. SMEAC has a Memorandum of Understanding and are currently in talks with the State Government with the intention of securing VTF a 50ha property an hour north of Brisbane.

The VTF is a magnificent facility, that was destined for demolition, a disused school camp with a full mess and a sleeping capacity for 150 pax. The camp is situated between a vast lake and 200 ha of state forest. It will have a 500m long high rope course, 5 km long obstacle course, 8.5m high rappelling tower and climbing wall, a 200m zip line and that will just be the beginning.

ENDSTATE: SMEAC will run school camps, veteran youth packages, youth justice programs, indigenous youth programs, corporate training, extreme corporate packages, functions, reunions, extreme obstacle racing, extreme triathlons, extreme marathons and a veteran run drug rehabilitation programs not to mention SMEAC’s own War Museum complete with a HUEY Helicopter.
This is a veteran run not for profit charity complete with our own training facility and RTO.

Who’s going to run this enterprise? Veterans. That vast untapped source of extremely well trained and experienced individuals discharged and thrown to the wolves. Veteran cooks, veteran mechanics, veteran instructors, veteran medics, veteran directing staff, veteran maintenance, and veteran clerk's you name it.

Don Cameron a great man and a massive supporter of SMEAC and a true believer in what we are setting out to achieve. Dons generosity in organising a pledge of $150,000 for the reconstruction of the camp is amazing. From a federal politician of 25 years it is inspiring to hear that this is the most important program to ever come across his desk.
Oh! And he brought us a fantastic lunch.
Awesome man.

Where to next?

The SMEAC Museum will be entered through a dimmed 20’ container which will provide a portal into a series of similarly blacked out labyrinth of dimly lit 40” containers.

Adventure Operations

The top floor will consist of a reproduction DHC4 Caribou mock up aircraft designed to replicate a parachute exit tower capable of dispatching a simultaneous stick of four paratroopers along a 200m long flying fox.
