We have Private Gareth Wright, based at Burnham Base. Gareth has been in the Army for over 15 years and has a wife and kids who enjoy life in Rakaia. His first job was in a Truck Wrecking Yard in Taranaki. Gareth joined the Army in 2007 with basic training in Waiouru. Starting his Army Career as a Driver in Transport saw him driving Unimogs, Buses and MANs. This included a busy role delivering vital supplies around Christchurch during the 2010/11 earthquakes.
We also have Private Aaron Parker also based at Burnham Base. Aaron started his working life in the Supermarket Industry as a Store-man and quickly progressed through to a Grocery Manager. Aaron now lives close by the Base and is getting married in November. After five years in the Army Aaron is excited about his Career ahead and looking after some interesting Heavy Transport fleet.
