The army along with the entire defence force has experienced many changes recently which has eroded a lot of the loyalty that existed. My typical day involves Meetings with the command team (of which I am part of), conducting planning tasks both present and future focused, account for security items, deal with any issues that may arise from the meetings or from personnel, liaising with outside agencies and produce documentation in support of any Squadron issues.
Free gym/fitness training, uniform provided.
Difficult with family life, no longer a carear-just a job (major change and dissapointing)
