A military recruite in the Northern Territory has warned that the military recruiting process can be a daunting experience.
Key points:Raean Fannett was sent to Australia to recruit military personnel from Afghanistan and IraqRaeans recruiter was suspended in December for “misconduct”He says she is the first person to be sent to Afghanistan and “was never in a position to make a decision”About three months later, Fannette was back in Australia.
The recruiter said he had been sent to Iraq because she was “looking for good candidates”.
“I’ve done everything I can,” he told 7.30.
“I have my own job.
I’ve got a family.
I’m looking for good people, and I’m getting good candidates.””
I don’t have the money or the training or the knowledge to do a decision on the merits of an individual.
I just don’t know.”
Rae’s recruiter also said the recruiter “doesn’t know the difference between a person who is going to be killed in war and a person that is going on to do something good”.
Rae says she was never in “a position to decide” who would be killed”She said she was also sent to Syria because she needed help with her “mental health”.
She told 7:30 she was sent because she would have to “serve a lot of people”.
Ree’s recruite said he was “unable to tell you if it’s the right person”because he did not know the person.
He said the recruitment process “can be stressful”.”
A lot of times people think you’re going to get a job that you want, you know, I’ll be able to go back home and raise my family,” he said.”
And you’ll have a job.
You’ll have the resources.
But there’s nothing that’s going to come of it.
“Ree said he never expected to go through the process, adding he was not prepared for “this”.”
It’s hard to put into words how it is,” he added.”
It takes a lot out of you.
It’s hard mentally.
“Rees recruiter suspended for “disorderly conduct”Rae is not the first military recruit to be suspended for misconduct.
In May, an Australian woman was suspended for being a “dangerous and dangerous person” for being sent to the Middle East to recruit members of the Australian Defence Force.
