30 years ago today my decision to join the ROYAL AUSTRALIAN NAVY would define me

30 years ago my god seems like an eternity I guess it kind of is. Proudly I know it made me who I am today

And would be what I would use to get me through some of lives toughest battles.

To my fellow comrades who also joined 8/2/88 Alpha Class of GE41 thank you for your service

Proudest Mum in the world… Stars have aligned

I can say proudly that my family have 4 generations of military service including the loss of my fathers uncle as a POW in Changi. My dads service in the Vietnam War, My grand father in the Second World War. I myself served in the Royal Australian Navy.

This week my second born child ZACHARY DEAN WILLIAMS will start his Service with the Royal Australian Navy basic training facility at HMAS CERBERUS.

I can tell you my father is watching from above because I can feel it this young man and him had a bond like no other.

I wish I could tell him all of this but as an alienated parent I can only hope the word gets through. The stars you ask well coincidentally when he joins it will be 30 years to the day that his mum then 17 joined the military.

I LOVE YOU SON, PROUD OF
