I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on being names the Australian Army Aviation Corps Soldier of the Year for 2012. This is a great achievement and one you should be very proud of.
Through your own iniative, hard work and determination, you achieved accreditation to conduct Dangerous Goods Training within the ADF. Obtaining this accreditation outside of the normal civilian and military agencies responsible for this training is widely recognised as difficult and unusual. Furthermore, by achieving this accreditation in the manner you have, you have afforded Defence significant savings in terms of travel and subsistence payments.
In recent times, you have managed and conducted critical aircrew training within Army and Navy and have been involved with the development of courseware and delivery. This is a significant achievement for a JNCO and in no small part, has contributed to the safety of ADF aircraft operations.
Furthermore, you have displayed an exemplary level of professionalism, whilst working under sever time constraints. You have applied yourself diligently to all tasks, ensuring all training has been delivered in an accurate and succinct manner.
You are highly regarded within the Australian Army Aviation Training Centre as a hard-working, professional and resourceful soldier. In your day to day duties, you consistently go beyond what is required of you, regularly demonstrating the highest of standards. You should be proud of your achievements and your recognition as the Australian Army Aviation Soldier of the Year for 2012.
