As part of the 110th birthday
celebrations for Army’s Corps of Royal Australian Engineers, the Royal
Australian Engineers (RAE) Foundation has launched its new website at www.raefoundation.org.au.
Created to support the cause of Australia’s past and present Sappers (a term used to describe military engineers), the website is a key part of promoting the Foundation’s message and aims.
“The Sapper community in Australia has a proud tradition of service to our nation,” said retired Colonel John Wertheimer, Chairman of the RAE Foundation.
“The Foundation seeks to honour that tradition while looking to serve the interests of current and future Sappers and their families.”
The RAE Foundation is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation with five objectives:
• assist with the welfare of RAE personnel and their dependants
• support projects that enhance the image of the RAE Corps
• maintain Australia's military engineering heritage
• conduct research and produce histories of Australian military engineering
• encourage excellence in military engineering.
“Our suite of programs includes welfare support programs for soldiers who are injured and the families of those killed while serving.
We also work with industry to find employment opportunities for soldiers who can no longer serve, but still have valuable skills for employers,” John said.
