About the event
Nearly fifty years ago, the Vietnam War came to an end. Brigadier Robert Atkinson will speak about his experiences in Vietnam during the War in its final year. Brigadier Atkinson applied for the Army Undergraduate Scheme as a medical student but was called up in the National Service Ballot system instead. He completed his medical degree as an intern at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital then started his Army career in January 1971, and soon volunteered to go to Vietnam. Following his return to Australia he undertook studies in orthopaedics and continued in the Army Reserve. During his military career, he had many overseas deployments including operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm in 1991, on the USNS Comfort. He was recognised for his significant service to Australia and made a member of the Order of Australia in 2008. Join us at the Club to hear Brigadier Atkinson and enjoy a premium three-course dinner with Club beverages.
