With a membership of 350, the Outer Eastern Melbourne Sub-branch has one of the highest membership numbers of any Sub-branch in Australia.Most of our members live in the Yarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges and Outer Eastern Suburbs region, but many live further afield and some, interstate. Our members are often also members of their local RSL, as well as being members of military associations and the Military Unit(s) with whom they served.
Membership of the OEM automatically extends to membership of the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia and Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia (Victoria) for all 'Ordinary' (Vietnam Veteran) members. As a member of these organisations you receive twice yearly editions of both "Debrief" (VVAA) and FSB-VIC (VVAA - Vic). OEM members also receive quarterly editions of our own "TAOR" newsletter publication.
The benefits of membership are many. See the " About", "Events" and "Welfare" pages for some of the services and activities which may be of interest to you. The "Wives Group" page also overviews a number of services and activities.
