Become a Member

Being in Defence is like being part of a family. Someone always has your back and you’re surrounded by people who share your interests and are working towards the same goals.

Whether you’ve separated from Defence or you’re still serving, as a member of RSL Queensland you become part of a network of volunteers who not only share the bond of service but are also committed to giving back to their Defence family.

"When you leave the service, it’s a real wrench. Being part of the RSL gives me back some of the camaraderie. Just feeling part of a group, knowing that someone’s got your back.” –  Cheryl barrett, Army veteran and RSL member

By joining the RSL, you can help other members of the Defence family who might not be as fortunate as yourself – those who are injured or ill, those who are struggling with transition, and the partners and families of those who are serving or who have served.

It's a way to recognise the service and sacrifice of those who served before us and with us, as well as those who are still serving or will serve after us. It is also a way for you to ensure the voice of veterans is heard by governments, public authorities and the public generally.
