"Good afternoon Mr Hanlon,
The Memorial was appalled to learn of Mr Freeman’s alleged actions and the manner in which he appears to have used the Roll of Honour for his own enrichment. The allegations against him are indeed grave, especially given he claimed his activities were intended to better the lives of our veterans and their families.
I assure you that we have reached out to Mr Freeman to ask him to donate the Roll to the Memorial as he originally informed us he planned to do so that we can take care of it as part of the National Collection and honour those listed on it appropriately. To date we have received no response.
I further understand that the police are now investigating this matter and look forward to their uncovering the truth in this matter in due course. I am sure that the police are treating this case with all due diligence and care, they have their own Roll of Honour and I am sure they too feel the actions of Mr Freeman most keenly.
Thank you for your concern in this matter, I am very hopeful that it will be appropriately resolved in the near future.
Chris Widenbar - Executive Officer
Office of the Director, Australian War Memorial"

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
Motivation for the motivated is a funny thing, because it isn’t about motivation at all. A tiny portion of society know exactly what they want, how to get it and what they have to do to achieve it.
They don’t need to be pushed or motivated, they need to be controlled.
