Julie-Ann Finney says royal commission ‘must get it right’ for veterans
Julie-Ann Finney says a Royal Commission into defence force suicides must listen and learn from what veterans are saying.
An inquiry will examine the systemic causes of suicide in those who serve and have served, and the experience of soldiers transitioning to civilian life.
Julie-Ann Finney has been at the forefront of the push for a Royal Commission ever since she lost her son David, a former Royal Australian Navy sailor who suffered from PTSD.
She told Ben Fordham it’s vital that the issues are resolved.

“It’s imperative that we hear the voices of those that have passed and those that are living in unimaginable pain. We must hear their voices.”
