PATRON OF THE KOKODA YOUTH FOUNDATION

Mti Keith Payne Img
KEITH PAYNE VC

We are proud to have Vietnam War hero Keith Payne VC as a patron of the Kokoda Youth Foundation. For many years, Keith has been awarding Kokoda Challenge competitors their Kokoda dog tags at the finish line for many years and continues to be a huge inspiration to our Kokoda Kids. Keith Payne, VC, AM is an Australian recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest decoration for gallantry “in the presence of the enemy” awarded to members of the British and Commonwealth armed forces. Payne’s VC was awarded for his actions during the Vietnam War. Aged 84, he is the last living Australian recipient of the original “Imperial” Victoria Cross.
