Thank you to Minister Reece Whitby MLA and our Commissioner Darren Klemm AFSM.

On Friday, 10 September our two attendees at the WAFES Conference, Chrissy and Carla, had a "Hull of a Time" at HMAS Stirling Naval Base on Garden Island. In Carla’s own words “thanks so much to the Navy guys and gals for hosting the event and putting on a great display - you were awesome! Got to see some of the submarines and ships that protect and serve our country, as well as watching a simulated helicopter fire drill, ship fire, and ship flood drills. Marine Rescue Rockingham then hosted our lunch, and showed us around their wonderful facilities and Rescue vessel - thank you so much! Followed by a Welcome Sundowner at the beautiful 'Burswood on Swan' - all set against the spectacular backdrop of our beautiful city, and Optus Stadium which was hosting the preliminary final. Congratulations Demons!”
