Soldier for a day at Gallipoli Barracks


Soldier for a day at Gallipoli Barracks (1.48 mins)

About 30 employees from Defence support organisations became a soldier for a day during Exercise Diamond Warrior at Gallipoli Barracks in Brisbane on March 7. The civilians conducted an over-water obstacle course, weapons handling, live-fire shooting and hostage rescue scenarios in the Urban Training Facility. Soldiers from the 7th Combat Brigade hosted employees of agencies including the Department of Veterans Affairs, RSLs, the Salvation Army, Veterans and Veterans Families Counselling Service, Australian Military Bank and Defence Bank. The hands-on experience of Army life gave participants a better understanding of the soldiers they support through their respective organisations.
