WAIKIKI resident James Crosby received a Saluting Their Service Certificate of Appreciation from Brand MHR Madeleine King.
The certificate was to recognise his service in contributing to Australia’s effort in peace operations.
Mr Crosby served in East Timor in the area of army medical health support.
Ms King said the certificates of appreciation were available to those who had served in conflicts and in peacekeeping operations as well as to families of deceased eligible veterans and civilians.
“It is important that we as a community recognise the contribution of our local veterans, whether it be on overseas service or at home. I encourage people to apply for a certificate under this program,” she said.
