The Council of USI of the ACT, in partnership with the Field Marshal Sir Thomas Blamey Memorial Fund, is proud to announce the reintroduction of the Blamey Oration to its annual program of events.

We are delighted to advise that the 2016 Blamey Orator will be internationally renowned Australian strategist, counter-terrorism expert and author, Dr David Kilcullen.
