Defence Force drops disciplinary action against me
I’ve received some great news today.
I’ve been verbally informed that the Australian Defence Force has dropped all disciplinary action against me. I’m waiting for written confirmation but this is fantastic news.
I was charged a number of times with bringing the ADF into disrepute, failing to comply with a lawful general order and failing to obey a lawful command. The charges were for statements I have made that the:
- ADF should not place women in front line combat roles.
- ADF should not pay for sex-change operations.
- ADF should not participate in the Mardi Gras.
- ADF should understand the link between Islam and violence.
Even though it appears I have now been cleared of breaching the Australian Defence Force Discipline Act, I am still facing administrative action to terminate my commission for making the above statements.
I will continue to fight against this action.
Thank you for the overwhelming support and assistance. It is very humbling.
It is also a great privilege to hear from soldiers and officers all over Australia who are concerned about the direction of the Australian Defence Force. You may disagree with their views, but you cannot deny that they are patriots who have been prepared to don a uniform and fight for Australia.
