Cove Talks

5 Brigade CoveTalk | 19 October 2019

By The Cove July 1, 2020

On 19 October 2019, the Commander and RSM of the 5th Brigade engaged reserve units within the formation via a live CoveTalk. This allowed them to explain some of the major changes coming to the Army Reserve and how these would impact on the soldiers of 5 Brigade.

The talk covered changes to the FORCEGEN cycle and what this will mean for the distribution of equipment, the division-wide adoption of a points system for the selection of reservists for training activities and operations, and concluded with a Q and A with soldiers from across NSW.

A must-watch video for those in the the Australian Army, particularly members of the part-time component. 

Please note that this video can only be viewed outside the DPN.
