Congratulations Captain Hastie.
Ten years ago today, I began the SASR selection course alongside 132 Australian servicemen. 40 completed the course—only 26 were selected for service.
It was three weeks of constant fatigue, hunger and sleeplessness. And it taught me a lot.
I learned that moral courage is more important than physical courage. I learned that leaders must persevere through anxiety, fear, fatigue and uncertainty.
