Team Army shows off techno tricks
IT IS one of the best recruiting tools and “Team Army” is happy to show the crowd what it can do.
Lieutenant Colonel Tom Regener, from the Army Logistic Training Centre in Victoria, said the team loved making the trip to Townsville. “We try to make it every year,” he said. The concept of Team Army was developed several years ago to promote the technical trades to motorsports enthusiasts.
Lt Col Regener said that when most people thought about the army, they assumed it was all combat roles.
“Australia doesn’t train enough tradesmen, so we have our own technical training school and we run 500 apprentices through there each year,” he said.
