AUSTRALIA DAY AWARDS
I am all for Australia Day Awards rewarding those people who go out of their way to assist in the community. I disagree totally with the awards that are given to people who are actually just doing their job, particularly when questions have been asked about some of the strategies used by these people to achieve their goals. Also the people left in their wake might have a very different interpretation of how they manage and lead their teams - some of which are quite large. Leaving aside those military honours for bravery, its time to also question why an Australia Day award is linked to the promotion/career path of service personnel. It doesnt stack up when people are working their butts off in voluntary capacities.
