Letters - July 2016

I am writing this in response to the article entitled “Reservists” in the April issue of Servamus.

Prior to responding to the article, I feel that it's important to provide some context. I have a degree in Human Resources and a Master in Business Management from Cardiff University in Wales. I've consulted and worked for 11 blue chip JSE-listed companies and am currently responsible for leadership and management development in a large international. I have worked in 14 countries and am qualified as a paramedic, as well as in scuba and parachuting. I'm married and a father to five.

I am also a police reservist with close on 25 years' experience in the SAPS and hold the rank of captain. I have worked at station, area/cluster and provincial level, not to mention in specialised units and two provinces. I have trained thousands of reservists and thus feel "qualified" to offer an opinion.
