Well, the Veterans Advisory Board have had 12 months to work out What is a Veteran and how is New Zealand going to recognise a Veteran.

What is the status of the Veterans Advisory Board? Will another Board be established and if so will it have cross-service representation? The silence is deafening!
The Ron Patterson Report was completed in 2017 which had 64 recommendations. Where is the update on which recommendations are accepted and which will be implemented? The silence is deafening!
A review is or was being undertaken on the Certificate of Appreciation and Lapel Badge. The silence is deafening!
