Parade thanks Slipper veterans
Esther Dank and RAAF Air
Combat Officer Michael Dunn
are urging everyone who
contributed to Operation Slipper
to take part in Saturday's
Welcome Home Parade.
Canberra will commemorate the 13
years of service made by
Australians involved in the war in
Afghanistan on Saturday at the
Operation Slipper Welcome
RAAF Squadron Leader Michael
Dunn said Saturday morning's
march along Anzac Parade
Canberra and service at the
Australian War Memorial was one
of nine commemorative parade
events across Australia.
He said marking the end of
Operation Slipper gave defence
personnel, locally engaged
employees and veterans the chance
to reflect on the sacrifices that
"This is the opportunity for
Australia to say thank-you for the
commitment made in the fight
against terrorism," Squadron
Leader Dunn said.
Senior public servant Esther
Dank was deployed from January to
July 2012 as a
business manager in charge of
service delivery contracts at
Without much exposure to
military life she said sleeping in
hardened containers and wearing
body armour and a helmet -- even to
the toilets in the middle of the night
-- took some getting used to.
The parade demonstrated that
both civilians and military had a
role in the success on the ground,
"I think it's a chance for
Canberra to realise the large
contingent of people that actually
participated in the operation,"
Squadron Leader Dunn was
deployed eight times to Afghanistan
throughout Operation Slipper.
He said post traumatic stress
disorder was a real threat faced by
the defence community and events
such as the parade were key to
providing closure and gathering
together individuals who may
otherwise feel isolated.
PTSD is a massive problem, I
think we have a long way to go but
we are certainly on the right track to
supporting people," he said.
"It will help people recognise
what they went through is valuable
and people understand they went
and made a sacrifice and now they
are home they need to be helped
Following the parade march, at
9.30am, and formal service, a
barbecue will be held for serving and
ex-serving veterans and their families
at Remembrance Nature Park.
