“I am pleased that the Defence Hon­ours and Awards Tri­bunal will inquire into recog­ni­tion of ser­vice with the Task Group Med­ical Sup­port Ele­ment One dur­ing the Gulf War in 1990–91.

“The Tri­bunal has com­menced or com­plet­ed inquiries into all of the issues iden­ti­fied by the Gov­ern­ment in its Defence elec­tion pol­i­cy. This is one of many addi­tion­al issues that the Gov­ern­ment has referred to the Tri­bunal for review,” Dr Kel­ly said.

A call for sub­mis­sions will be released short­ly in the nation­al press. Sub­mis­sions to the inquiry close on Mon­day 23 August, 2010.

Ser­vice with the Task Group Med­ical Sup­port Ele­ment One is cur­rent­ly recog­nised with the Aus­tralian Ser­vice Medal with Clasp ‘Kuwait’. The issue of recog­ni­tion by way of the Aus­tralian Active Ser­vice Medal has been raised with the Gov­ern­ment and the Tri­bunal.

I would encour­age those inter­est­ed in this issue to now take advan­tage of the oppor­tu­ni­ty to make a sub­mis­sion,” Dr Kel­ly said.
