I’m not saying it’s a bad thing.
But it’s not something I’d like to do, I suppose.
And I know the price of it.
I’ve heard it said that it’s about having a great body of knowledge, but I’d prefer that it is more about a great mind.
I like the idea of learning something new every day, of having new perspectives, and of having a better understanding of the world around me.
But I don’t want to be a soldier, or a soldier in a uniform.
I don’t know what the Army’s role is in the world, and I don, either.
But if you ask me, the Army profession is something I’ve always liked, even if I’ve never thought it was as important as it has been in recent times.
The Army is not for me, I’d say, because I don´t want to have the burden of being the one that is responsible for the upkeep of the country.
The problem is that my own country has a lot of problems and I’m always being blamed.
So the Army has been something that I’ve enjoyed.
But for me I would like to see it become a little bit more open, to make it more open to the public.
It’s not for the average person.
I’m a citizen, and a member of the Australian community.
And if I were to become an Australian citizen, it would mean a lot to me.
If I was to become part of the national anthem, and sing it, I would be very proud.
So why don’t we have an Australian Defence Force?
I think it’s time.
The world is changing, the world is bigger and the world wants to know who is there and what’s going on.
So I think we need a little more respect and recognition for the Australian military.
That way, we won’t be forced to pay such huge taxes.
In a recent article in The Australian, author and former Army officer Mark D’Ambrosio wrote: “We’ve always said that the Army is for the people, the country, the nation and, above all, the Australians.
But it’s also about a lot more than just the Army, it’s the whole nation that needs to be kept safe, it has to keep itself strong, and it has the responsibility to protect its own citizens.”
The Australian Defence Forces have a lot in common with the army, says retired colonel and former Defence Force member Paul MacLean.
They’re a public service organisation, he says, “but also a private one.
It’s about people’s willingness to work hard, to be brave, and to fight for what they believe in, because that’s the Army for you.”
D’Ambrozio was commissioned into the Army as a sergeant, in the 1960s.
He was a fighter pilot and was involved in the 1967 coup attempt against President John Howard.
“I did not think it was necessary to become such a decorated soldier, but it is,” he says.
MacLean is a retired colonel who spent many years in the Army and then joined the Australian Defence forces.
He has been involved in various roles in the defence and security sectors.
He says that for many, the military is a personal and spiritual thing.
You need to be strong, you need to live life with integrity and with honor, he argues.
But, he stresses, it is not about the army.
We’re not in the military to make money.
We’re in the army to defend Australia and to be proud of our country, he believes.
Paul MacLean says the Australian Army should become more open and transparent.
What we need to do is have an open dialogue about the Australian defence and we need people who want to get involved, he tells Al Jazeera.
At the same time, he warns that we have to remember that the public needs to have confidence that the defence force is doing its job.
‘People have to feel safe’When it comes to the Defence Force, there are two main issues.
One is the number of people in the Defence Forces, and the second is the quality of the service and training that is being provided, says MacLean, who has served in the Australian Navy, Royal Australian Navy and the Australian Air Force.
If you look at the Army career ladder, there’s about 500,000 people in it now.
And the military’s been operating in Australia since 1901.
For the first 10 years of the 20th century, Australia was under colonial rule.
There were no public servants.
The Commonwealth provided a wide range of services, including policing, education and healthcare.
The population was a mix of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.
But there was no government.
During the Second World War, Australia experienced a period of political instability.
The country was divided between Labor and Nationalists.
