On Wednesday 24th November 2021, we held a guest speaker series with newly appointed DRA board member Dave Smith. Over an impressive 34 year military career he commanded at every level from platoon (around 30 soldiers) to brigade (around 3000) and has seen operational service in East Timor three times, Solomon Islands and Afghanistan. Currently, he is responsible for leading the team that acquires and sustains all personal equipment and supplies for Australian Defence Force personnel.
Dave was appointed a Member in the Military Division of the Order of Australia in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday Honours List in recognition of his achievement in key command and staff roles and was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal in the 2013 Australia Day Honours List for his service in Afghanistan.
Don’t miss the opportunity to listen in on Dave’s unique insights gained from decades of service!
