Our Story


Established in 2018, The Pineapple Express (TPE) is an Australian Veteran Community page that began with satirical social media posts, but has grown into a mechanism for mental health support and advocacy for veterans and currently serving ADF personnel. 

With a combined service of over 20 years, TPE co-founders and administrators have a wealth of knowledge and experience consisting of multiple deployments (Iraq and Afghanistan), different corps and different ranks.

Our goals are simple, we are committed to increasing morale and helping former, current, and future ADF personnel and their families utilising our connection and networking capabilities.
