Daniel Chand’s dream to con­tinue in his fa­ther’s foot­steps be­came a re­al­ity yes­ter­day. The 24-year-old was part of the Repub­lic of Fiji Mil­i­tary Force (RFMF) passin­gout pa­rade at the Forces Train­ing Group (FTG) in Nas­inu yes­ter­day. His fam­ily was present to wit­ness his grad­u­a­tion and to also con­grat­u­late the re­cruit. His mother Irene Chand said: “I am so proud of my son. “My hus­band died late last year and my son had al­ways wanted to join the force and I thank him for his per­sis­tence and ded­i­ca­tion,”Mrs Chand said. She de­scribed her son as an in­tel­li­gent and hum­ble man. Mean­while Mr Chand de­scribed the nine-weeks train­ing as tough and re­ward­ing. “This is a huge achieve­ment for me and I ded­i­cate it to my fam­ily and es­pe­cially my Dad,” he said.

“I learned a lot of life’s valu­able lessons dur­ing my train­ing and I thank my in­struc­tors for their hard work and also to my team for their en­cour­age­ment.”
