After a rocky start, Lorraine Hatton spent twenty years serving in the Australian Army both here and overseas.
Now she shares her story with young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are thinking about joining up.
This is Lorraine’s first Anzac Day in this role. She is going home to North Stradbroke Island to mark the occasion with family and friends.
