ARMY RESERVE: What I love about military life

IT'S a second job that offers adventure, fitness and tax-free income.

You don't need experience to join the Army Reserves, with Rockhampton's diverse troops showing it's perfect for everyone from all walks of life.

 

After over 20 years in the mining industry, LCPL Dan Becker was looking for some adventure and change from his role as stay at home dad to three children.

"I've been on operations, I loved it," he said.

"It was challenging being away from my wife and kids, but I've got an amazing wife who is a business owner so had to look after a business, three kids and had a husband away as well."

 

Earlier this week, Cpl Aaron McCosker shared his story from working as a furniture removalist to serving in Afghanistan.
