CPL Simon Treadaway has returned
from a course in the US with a swag
CPL Treadaway, a communi-
cations electronic technician with
Canberra-based 462SQN, attend-
ed the Information Operations
Integration course with the US Air
Force at Hurlburt Field in Florida
between January 3 and February 4.
He received awards for Academic
Excellence and Distinguished
Graduate and was voted the most
Outstanding Contributor by his peers.
He said he thoroughly enjoyed
the five-week course.
"It was a great experience work-
ing with coalition defence services
and obtaining an understanding on
how they operate," CPL Treadaway
The aim of the course was to train
airmen to plan and execute informa-
tion operations capabilities for Joint
Forces Air Component Commanders
to accomplish campaign objectives.
A key focus was on battle-space
Other subjects taught on the
course included a detailed expla-
nation of all areas of information
operations, and included influence
operations, network warfare and
462SQN operations officer
WOFF Andrew Floor said CPL
Treadaway's achievements were out-
standing and showed the member's
dedication to his job.
MORE than 3000 people lined the pe-
rimeter of ADFA's parade ground in
Canberra on February 26 to witness
one of the largest CDF parades in the
This year's event marked CDF
ACM Angus Houston's final time
as the reviewing officer of an ADFA
On the parade ground were 350
first-year officer cadets and midship-
men undertaking their first parade at
ADFA in front of family members,
friends and staff.
Three Hawk 127s soared over the
parade ground in a flypast moments
before ACM Houston delivered his
speech congratulating the cadets.
"Be proud of this moment, and the
things that you have accomplished,"
he said. "Life in the ADF has its chal-
lenges, but it is also a great privilege
-- for not only are you serving the
nation, but you will have the opportu-
nity to work alongside, and inevitabil-
ity lead, some of the finest men and
women in Australia."
ACM Houston said the new officers
would have important roles to play when
"You can expect to serve across the
world to protect our nation and sup-
port our national interests," he said.
"Today, young men and women
who, six years ago on my first CDF
Parade, stood on this very parade
ground are in Afghanistan, Timor-
Leste and Solomon Islands.
"They are with the United Nations
in Israel and Sudan, and they are with
the Multi-National Force of Observers
in Egypt. Closer to home, they are
protecting Australia's borders and off-
shore maritime assets."
