I wondered why Lambie is such an advocate for armed forces veterans. She IS one.



"Lambie served in the Australian army for 11 years, before being medically discharged in 2000 because of a back injury.

She will give evidence today and is expected to speak about a lengthy legal battle with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs over compensation.

Lambie, who called for a royal commission into defence force culture during her maiden Senate speech in 2014, has previously revealed she attempted suicide in 2009 as she struggled with an addiction to painkillers."
