“When voting I urge you to vote for your families, vote for your children, vote for the less unfortunate, the needy and the vulnerable of our communities.”

Kalouniwai says all soldiers should look at voting as a duty.

“We must look at this as a duty to avoid complicity with injustice. We must remember if you not doing so you become complicit and allowing injustice to prevail over the most vulnerable of our people.”

The RFMF Commander says this is a significant moment in our nation as by next week, we will know the government that will lead us for the next four years.

Also part of the Commanders End of Year parade is the awarding of the Command medals, the Meritorious Services Decoration and the Meritorious Services Award to service personnel of the RFMF.
