Army website goes live
2 March 2012
On the day that Army celebrated its 111th birthday, the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison, announced the launch of the Australian Army’s new website.
In keeping with the modern requirements of the Australian Army in the digital age, the Army is harnessing the power of the Internet and has developed a new, dynamic website to inform, educate and engage.
“Our new website provides audio and visual information of what we are doing now, what we will do in the future, as well as what has made us who we are,” General Morrison said.
“I invite you to explore Australia’s modern Army – a reflection of our Anzac heritage, performing a vital role in today’s world with a deep commitment to the security of Australia in the 21st century.
“While focusing on today’s Army and current serving members in uniform, the website recognises the invaluable contribution that civilians make to our organisation as well as the importance of past members whose service created the respected national institution.
“People are Army’s most valuable asset and the website conveys the story of who we are,” General Morrison said.
General Morrison made special mention of the wider Army family and his hope that the website provides them with useful information that assists them in their daily lives.
The new Australian Army website features interactive soldiers that rotate 360 degrees, a collection of rare oral histories, videos and images, and information about Army’s force restructure, Plan BEERSHEBA.
