Defence Takes all the Good People

By che 1 April 2005 6

ABC has this story on Defence draining the pool of skilled workers in the ACT. Reservists are taking up full time service to head overseas on deployment. In particular its affecting doctors and nurses who are being sent to tsunami affected areas so that their not at home working in Canberras hospitals. Personnally I see their deployment to tsunami affected areas as a good thing, but having spoken to some aid workers just returned from Aceh it sounds like the ADF efforts are being directed by politics rather than necessity, ie clearing towns where no ones lives anymore rather than clearing the towns where the refugee camps have been set up.

What’s Your opinion?

If you would like to leave please don’t let fear hold you back….off you go, more room for the rest of us who like the joint. Live in inner Sydney or Melbourne for 6 months and see if your opinion changes

I can think of tens of thousands of good reasons, per annum, to stay in Defence.
