This Veteran Organisation dedicates itself, in grateful recognition and memory of their countrymen, the Immortal Dead of South Africa, who, at the call of Duty, made the supreme Sacrifice on the battlefields of Africa, Asia and Europe, in the air and on the sea.
Their ideal is our legacy - Their sacrifice our inspiration
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.
SAMVOA is an ex-servicemen organisation comprised of Military and Police Veterans who were called up or volunteered to serve their country, South Africa, in the SADF/SANDF, SAP/SAPS, or the South Africa Prison Services, who completed their commitment and who now reside in Australia or New Zealand, or in countries peripheral to this region.
SAMVOA is a single rank organisation with "Veteran" being the only rank. The organisation's strength will come from veteran membership and comradeship at Club level, and the organisation will take its lead and direction from this membership level.
SAMVOA Veterans will carry forward the memory of an amazing time in our lives, when we did our job and faced off against the world's most aggressive and formidable forces at the time. There can be no doubt that we served in the best defence force that Africa has ever seen.
