Christine ‘Jacko’ Bennett is the Veteran Support Officer at RSL Care SA. Working across both of our aged care facilities, Jacko plays a vital part in ensuring our cohort of veterans are emotionally and physically supported.
While Jacko is a relatively new addition to the organisation, she has already created deep and lasting connections with our veterans. Through her genuine understanding, caring and bubbly personality, Jacko has rightly earned the respect of all veterans, residents and staff at RSL Care SA.
Having served in the Australian Regular Army for 24 years, Jacko is well versed in the bonds of service and mateship and shares a strong sense of comradery with her fellow veterans. Jacko also deployed to East Timor, Timor Leste and Iraq while serving her country.
RSL Care SA is a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to be the key provider of specialised accommodation services and related support for the benefit of the ex-service community of South Australia. Our work is not possible without staff members such as Jacko, who work tirelessly to better the lives of veterans and the wider community.
