President’s Report Well, by your comments the first of our new editions was well received by all. Some people actually sent in news from around the "traps". The article written by Geoff Evans, a former Reservist from 1st Commando Regiment is a "must read". It was previously published in the Reveille, but is a powerful recant of his Combat service and I recommend it to all members of the Commando Family. Geoff, among others, is still suffering from his journey from Reservist to Combat Duty. I remember a former SOCAUST saying to troops "be careful what you wish for" when they were volunteering for duty overseas. The groups that Geoff is involved with also deserve our support, donations and support to "Soldier On" and like groups is recommended. We have included a number of sug - gestions for family outings that you may want to participate in and we would also like to have further suggestion for the future. Anzac Day is our next big get together and I look forward to seeing some of the "old and bold" mixing with our newest Veterans at the Commando Seat. See you on the 25th April.
