The admission price for the September concert, which will see the concert band team up with the Royal Australian Navy Band, will go towards the Young Diggers Dog Squad charity.
The charity takes rescue dogs from shelters and has them trained before matching them with returned soldiers to help them manage their condition.
Casey Concert Band leader Greg Marks said the band had wanted to perform with the navy band for many years.
He said he knew a lot of people who had served and agreed PTSD was a major problem among veterans.
“My father served in World War II and I worked – up until I retired a few years ago – as an air traffic controller and I know a lot of returned service people from ... mainly the Vietnam War.
The show will be held at 2pm, September 18, at St Margaret’s School, Berwick.
