(RAMSI)

In July 2013, Tony Parks, Director of Architecture HQ participated in an operation - Exercise BOSS LIFT. Where employers of Australian Defence Force reservists visited their employees in the Solomon Islands as part of Exercise BOSS LIFT. The exercise provided 27 employers with a taste of life on operations and the opportunity to see the skills and experiences that their employees are gaining from reserve military service on Operation ANODE through a number of programmed activities and interaction with their employees. The Exercise also aims to build employers’ appreciation for the interchange of skills that reservists can bring back to their civilian employment and the skills they bring from their civilian employment to their military employment.

Jarrad is due to return to Australia in early August 2013 where he will be presented with an Australian Services Medal for his contribution.  We congratulate Jarrad on all his achievements and welcome him back to Australia
