CDF Engagement with 3 Brigade

By The Cove October 2, 2020

On 16 September 2020, The Cove hosted a live stream event between Chief of the Defence Force, GEN Angus Campbell AO, DSC and members of the 3rd Combat Brigade. 

The CDF discusses key issues such as the highly unique challenges the ADF has faced in 2020 and the importance of members of the ADF being exemplars in the community. He touches on the priorities of effort for the ADF in the long term as outlined in the Defence Strategic Update 2020 and the Force Structure Plan.  But as with any engagement opportunity, he was interested to hear questions from the members of 3 Brigade and spends the majority of the session responding to questions submitted prior to and during the live stream.

You can watch the recording here on YouTube, noting that this needs to be viewed on a non-DPN connection.
