Happy Holidays

Ombudsman Message | 21 December 2017


Happy Holidays to all members of the Defence community.

I know many of you may be away from your loved ones this holiday season, making it a difficult one, but as you reach out to connect in the best way you can, my hope is that you do so with the knowledge that your giving in this way does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

This past year has been a busy one and I am pleased to be able to look back and affirm that we are achieving what we stand for — fair treatment and positive change for the community we serve.

As we enjoy the holiday season and reflect on the past year, I urge each of you to spend time with your loved ones. Enjoy a safe, deserved rest.

In closing, let me say how thankful I am to serve all of you. May each of you and your loved ones, both near and far, have a happy holiday season and all the best in the New Year. We always stand ready to help.
