No place in our Air Force
SGT Dave Morley
IN LIGHT of recent revelations concerning
the suspension of three Army members for
inappropriate behaviour, CAF AIRMSHL
Geoff Brown has reinforced the importance
of translating the Air Force values into eve-
AIRMSHL Brown said he agreed with
the Chief of Army that there was no place for
unacceptable behaviour in the organisation.
"I will not tolerate unacceptable behav-
iour, or managers and leaders that do not
investigate and respond swiftly and appropri-
ately to complaints of unacceptable behav-
iour," AIRMSHL Brown said.
"Commanders, managers and leaders at
all levels -- from our LACs and corporals,
our APS managers, through to our FEG
Commanders and myself -- have responsi-
bilities to set the highest standards and take
appropriate actions when Air Force members
fall short of our standards.
"I am absolutely committed to shap-
ing Air Force as an organisation of people
that have the courage to always do the right
"Our Air Force is overwhelmingly made
up of good people who do the right thing,
but those people that display unacceptable
values and behaviours are not welcome in
our Air Force."
CAF said he released the Air Force
Values last year as the basis for behaviours
for Air Force personnel.
"The values were not an end point for
cultural change -- they need to be translated
Unacceptable values and behaviours are not welcome, says CAF
I am absolutely
shaping Air Force
as an organisation
of people that
have the courage
to always do the
-- CAF AIRMSHL
into the behaviours we all display, every
day," he said.
"Our values -- Respect, Excellence,
Agility, Dedication, Integrity and Teamwork
-- reflect the standards we expect of our-
selves, and of our colleagues, every day.
"We must all live those values every day,
to ensure that our Air Force is one that we
can be proud to serve in, at all times."
He urged anyone experiencing unaccepta-
ble behaviour to report it through their chain
"If for any reason you are uncomfortable
you can also report it to your equity adviser."
AIRMSHL Brown's message came after
three Army members were suspended, with
another five facing suspension, as a result of
the alleged production and distribution on
the internet and Defence computer systems
of highly inappropriate material demeaning
In a media conference in Canberra on
June 13, Chief of Army LTGEN David
Morrison said the matter was part of
an ongoing investigation by the ADF
Investigative Service in cooperation with
"There is no place for this type of behav-
iour in our Army, and a Defence Force that
prides itself on teamwork, courage and
respect, and where women and men work
alongside each other as colleagues and pro-
fessionals," LTGEN Morrison said.
CDF GEN David Hurley said he was
disturbed by the nature of the evidence col-
lected and angered by the actions of those
"Their behaviour does not
accord with the ADF's val-
ues and I fully support the
Chief of Army's decisions
to date," GEN Hurley
said.He said the behaviour
of the individuals con-
cerned reflected poorly
on all ADF members.
"As members of the
ADF we have a duty to
protect our colleagues.
"Every person in the
ADF deserves the right
to serve without any
kind of physical,
mental or sexual
abuse and I will
defend their right
