By the time this edition of ADM hits your desk, 2020 will officially be over (thank goodness). Yet its effects will linger well into 2021 and beyond. It will be hard to wipe the smoke and mask marks from our eyes. But this is exactly what we must do. The Defence community in all its forms will need to look at what we do and how we do it with fresh eyes if we are to answer the needs of government to build and maintain national resilience in all its forms.
I don’t think I need to go through the events of 2020 in detail on this page. We’ve all lived it, and thankfully for the most part, survived it. My condolences to those that have lost people during this period. Suffice to say, it was a dumpster fire for many.
