Defence Forces Officers Safely Return from the Democratic Republic of the Congo

Great news that the two Defence Forces Officers who were serving with the Monusco mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are finally home. It has been several weeks since the Defence Forces first raised concerns about their safety, so it is good that they are finally safe at home this evening with their families.

This again reinforces the fact that we as a nation seriously require our own military aircraft to safely transport members of the Defence Forces.
