Senator The Hon. David Feeney MP
Parliamentary Secretary for Defence
The Parliamentary Secretary for Defence, Senator David Feeney, has congratulated the five Western Australian employers recognised last night for their support of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) Reserves.
The event, organised by the Western Australian Committee of the Defence Reserves Support Council (DRSC) and held at Irwin Barracks, Karrakatta, recognised employers who have supported their Reservist employees.
The Employer of the Year Award was presented to Chevron Australia Pty Ltd by His Excellency Dr Ken Michaels, Governor of Western Australia.
Senator Feeney offered his congratulations to all the award recipients saying, “Our Reserve forces considerably enhance Defence capability, in particular their support of existing operations. Without the ongoing support of employers, such as those represented at the Awards, it would not be possible for Reservists to successfully coordinate their civilian and Service roles.”
The night was also held to congratulate the winners of the Reserve Service Excellence Awards.
