• The ADF has given me a career,
                                  rather than a job. It's given me
                                  control over my direction in life
                                  and allowed me to be part of
                                  something bigger than myself.
  • The Australian Defence Force has
                                  always made me feel truly welcome,
                                  has afforded me many great
                                  opportunities and has appreciated
                                  the diversity of the knowledge that
                                  i bring to the team.
  • I'm interested in the opportunities
                                  the new aircraft being introduced
                                  offer me job wise in the future.
