I am writing to say a big thank you to both yourself and your amazing team for sending me such an amazing quilt.
Aussie Heroes do such an fantastic job and I thank you greatly for everything you are doing. I would also like to thank Sandy C for everything she has done and the studio provided. It really meant a lot last week receiving your beautiful parcel and thank you for the lovely letter and the chocolates (I think I had that for breakfast a few mornings ha-ha)
I joined the Air Force in 1999 straight out of High School and joined up as an Avionic Technician in the Royal Australian Air Force, which is essentially an Electrician on the Aircraft. I got to Sergeant in 2009 and then the Air Force put me through University and I studied Electrical Engineering under a scholarship. I graduated University the end of 2013 and have been doing Engineering ever since.
I hope this email finds you well, and once again, thank you so much for all your support an kind words. I will be home in a few months and cant wait to see my two children and partner. My son is 10 and my daughter is 3.5 years old. They are coping ok, but my daughter doesn't like getting on the phone so I just get a heap of photos sent through.
Once again, thank you and we very much love the kind words and support all you ladies provide to our Defence members.
I received your laundry bag and reckon it’s fantastic. I was one of the first up to the pile of bags and sifted through about 120 of them and chose yours because it was the best.
I am currently on Rifle Company Butterworth rotation 124. We are here at RMAF Butterworth in Malaysia for 3 months doing some training. It’s very hot and humid just walking around base and we haven’t even got into the jungle yet!
Anyway thank you for what you are doing, all the guys really appreciate all the laundry bags that everyone is making for us, they are awesome and a good souvenir that we will take home with us and use forever.
Here’s a photo of me with it.
Just sending a quick email to say thank you for the gift of laundry bag. I was fortunate to receive the flash bag.
A little bit about me. I am currently serving in the Army Reserves on deployment in Malaysia. My normal work is managing a communications business in Toowoomba just up the hill from you in a manner of speaking.
Earlier this year I was deployed on Operation Resolute working with Border Force and the Navy protecting the shores in the northern parts of Australia.
I previously served full time between 1978 and 1990. I currently have two of my four children in the Defence Force the eldest in the Airforce and the second youngest lad in the Army. Both are currently based in Adelaide, however the eldest lad is being posted to Amberley and heads north in a couple of weeks. As you can appreciate we are very happy to have him and his family heading our way.
Both my father and grandfather have served in the Army, with my grandfather seeing action in WW2 in PNG and Bougainville.
Thanking you with a greatful heart. God’s richest blessings to you and your family.
