(Left to right) Veteran of the Malayan and Vietnam conflicts, Brian Magann, U.S. Marine Cpl. Jacobus Nieuwoudt and U.S. Army Master Sgt. Pierre Jackson work together in constructing a fence at the Cockscomb Veterans Bush Retreat in Cawarral.
United States military members from Exercise Talisman Sabre 2011 Combined Exercise Support Group have lent a hand to the Cockscomb Veterans Bush Retreat, assisting its members with some camp maintenance. The Veterans Bush Retreat was founded in response to a need in the local Rockhampton community and its many veterans of the Vietnam War. Designed as a place to relax, the retreat has grown and can now cater for over 300 members in the Queensland area. The Combined Exercise Support Group is currently in Australia to participate in Exercise Talisman Sabre 2011.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
