Boshoed Dag 2017

Boshoed day is on the 26th August

This day in 1966 – 51 years ago, was the recognised start of the South African Border War, which lasted 23 years, 6 months, 3 weeks and 2 days.
Please remember the 2,280 members of the SADF that gave their lives in service of their country during this period. Of these 776 were killed in action.

Wear something SADF related on the day.
Can be anything from your boshoed, beret, SAMVOINT badge, Balkie, etc.
Take a selfie and share/post photos on either Facebook or email to SAMVOZA to share on the SAMVOZA/SAMVOINT website.

Create awareness of our veterans and especially to honour those who made the supreme sacrifice.

Unscrupulous and Illegal Veteran Bodies

With the ever increasing number of ‘informal’ so-called Veterans bodies, comes the risk of opportunistic chancers seeking to benefit by taking unscrupulous and illegal advantage of Veterans.
The below two gents have also tried and lost.
Please be warned and advise others to only deal with legitimate CMVO aligned bodies.
