Hi. My name is Barry, I served in 2RAR for about 6 and a half years and am now serving in 5/6 RVR and studying International Relations at Deakin. I finished my Bachelor Degree last year with a double major in International Relations and Middle Eastern Studies. I'll be studying at the Burwood campus this year and will be there most days. Feel free to get in touch with me. I'm happy to show anyone around and answer any questions. Cheers.

Hi all, my name is Gareth. Was in the RAAF for seven years before discharging in 2015 to commence studying at Deakin. Spent most of my time at 1SQN with the F/A18Fs and did both a Op Slipper and Op Okra deployment. Currently in my final year of an Arts Degree with a double major in Crim and IR.

Chat to you all soon :)

Hey guys. Thank you all for touching base. I met with Matthew (also doing criminology) earlier this afternoon and discussed a few things we'll need to get established, the first thing is numbers. So if we can just get some signatures on paper for DUSA we're well on our way. Also, we may meet up next Tuesday for coffees and chat so it'll be a great opportunity to meet, greet and start the networks. Feel free to get in touch with me via these means or by the phone number above. All the best. Thanks again!

Hello again everyone. Just so you're aware, an ASVA - Deakin University chapter page has been set up on facebook so you can keep updated with goings on or pose questions about transitioning into tertiary education, studying in general, civilian life reserves or anything else related. I'll probably post stuff up about ANZAC Day in Melbourne too. So feel free to hop on and have a look. All the best.
