Recognising Defence & Veteran Families For Their Service

Here in Australia, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate and commemorate the sacrifice and service of men and women who have served Australia and our allies during conflicts and peace operations. From ANZAC Day to Remembrance Day, without the courageous stories of our veterans it would have been difficult to envision what makes Australia such a great nation today. Besides commemorations and anniversaries, we at Mal Glanville & Co believe there are other ways to recognise the impact significant veterans have made to our country.

What is APOD?

Australian Partners of Defence (APOD) was first established in 2012 by military families who found that amongst the myriad of discount programs available, there was nothing exclusively for defence personnel and their families.

With the belief that serving your country deserves recognition, APOD created a secure discount platform for veterans and their families. This allowed the defence community to connect with businesses that do value their sacrifices through exclusive offers.

Today, APOD has grown into the largest defence discount program here in Australia. Officially partnered with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) and in support of the Australian Defence Veterans’ Covenant, APOD delivers thousands of exclusive offers and concession entitlements to more than 50,000 active members.

Mal Glanville is now a partner of APOD

At Mal Glanville & Co, we too recognise the sacrifices veterans have made while serving their country and would like to offer our gratitude. We are proud to announce that we have become a partner of APOD and look forward to connecting with Australia’s defence community. Regardless of your veteran business size or industry, if you require a product or service from us, we are more than honoured to support you.
