I can say proudly that my family have 4 generations of military service including the loss of my fathers uncle as a POW in Changi. My dads service in the Vietnam War, My grand father in the Second World War. I myself served in the Royal Australian Navy.
This week my second born child ZACHARY DEAN WILLIAMS will start his Service with the Royal Australian Navy basic training facility at HMAS CERBERUS.
I can tell you my father is watching from above because I can feel it this young man and him had a bond like no other.
I wish I could tell him all of this but as an alienated parent I can only hope the word gets through. The stars you ask well coincidentally when he joins it will be 30 years to the day that his mum then 17 joined the military.
I LOVE YOU SON, PROUD OF
