    • Documentary

Steve Watson - Served in both the Royal Australian Army - 6RAR and Royal Australian Air Force - Airfield Defence Guard roles with multiple deployments to East Timor, Afghanistan and more.
Steve talks about the highs and lows of service, and the challenges of adjusting to life out of uniform.
This is such a fantastic, raw chat with Steve, talking through his life and careers.  From starting out as a typical young bloke tearing up the town starting out with Army Reserve moving to full time service then changing services to the RAAF and the challenges of leaving military life.  All this followed by buying a pub he used to frequent as a young guy living the South Australian outback aside the Flinders Ranges.
Deployments to East Timor and Afghanistan left a mark, with challenges still to this day.  Despite all of this, Steve talks about giving back to his local community with the only local emergency service, the Country Fire Service.
It was a lucky connection with some of our mates at 3 Zeros Coffee that made this podcast happen, amazing to think this came together in the middle of the South Australian Outback through our mutual friend.
So many parts of this story will resonate with many, so listen in to this amazing Australians' story.
