Thank you all for your service 💜

Bummer, never knew about it happening. Would have been good to bump heads with fellow first responders, hopefully others who attended The Thredbo Landslide and Sydney hail storm event when I was at them.

Hi Phillip Do you support a system, similar to ADF gold card etc, for first responders injured in the line of duty? Team Code Blue Inc. Peter I understand first responders are employees of the state but the support should be federal so it includes all of them regardless of where they work.

Do you actually have your own job ? Or just a photo op ??

LIVE FIRE EXERCISE: Fantastic to experience Australian Army units from our 3rd Brigade - Australian Army at their most lethal during this warfighter exercise. I was honoured to thank our soldiers for their continued service to 🇦🇺 their commitment and professionalism which they continually display. This type of training is working, and preparing our brave men and women for any scenario they could be in. I also snuck out some lollies, these soldiers have been out field for more than 4 weeks. ...

Thank you to Cubic for the demonstration! Very good and realistic.

These are the people that should get OAM not ex premiers who were plain and simple dictators and unaustralian locking us out of travelling our own country to visit loved ones.

Make you want to join up again mate? 😆

Well done Phillip. Great to see a Politician with Boots on the ground. Not the show up type on a special occasion. Thank you for Service.

Is this Townsville.

Those troops need all the encouragement we can give them at the moment. Top Brass have lost the plot.

Great work Phil Nice to see all the support you give to our community ! Glad you sneaked out lollies ! They deserve a treat Also deserve as much recognition as ex premiers who were awarded medals from our useless PM Keep up your good work 😀

Never truer words written, just in case people forget, well at least for me, " My oath of enlistment....has no expiration date...." neither does protecting my family, my community, my city, my country being attacked from Islamic terror groups, antisemitism, really this is what you have become, a weak, fractured society, manipulated by popularity, greed and hubris. Look at our current PM and his cabinet, have no more experience, at running the affairs of our great country, than he has of running a brothel....

Looking gorgeous much beautiful lucky people who live with u around u 😘 😊 😉 ☺ 😀

Nice one Phil

Bet you felt good being there.... memories from a while ago....

Well done Thommo. Bring back some good memories?

Great photos of team ADF.🇦🇺

Careful you don't get an itch lol. Well done that man

Did you get the bush rash Thomo 👍👍😁

They used to bring us smokes.

Nice one Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community As usual keeping it real with boots on the ground. X

Lock and load. This is not a game. Proud to be a X-Service Soldier.

Great stuff Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community keeping in touch with the team

Champion our member Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community well done champ cheers

Love your work Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community

Pat John, He's been up there before in Cams too Pat. He'd be very familiar with CABW Rotations and MREs prior to his Afghanistan deployment and others mate. 👍🇦🇺🦘

Phillip Thompson OAM MP - Serving Our Community, my brother in Christ… how can you buck the trend of being a politician in regional QLD and not dress up like an RM Williams catalogue with an Akubra?! 😛

Well done Phil. 👍👍 I see you brought the lollies. 😂😂👍👍

Thank you, and these, who follow your example ...
