Exercise POPONDETTA PRELUDE Team Bravo completing today's rafting challenge. The team (Junior Legatees and ADF Mentors) had to build a raft to retrieve food rations from the middle of the dam.

Great teamwork, especially those ADF veterans who had served with the parent of the junior Legatee.

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest...
