Brendon Dawson
Leading Aircraftman LAC
Medical Technician
Royal Australian Air Force

My name is Brendan Dawson, and my family comes from both the Yuin and Biripi tribes along the East coast of New South Wales. I am a Medic in the Royal Australian Air Force, currently serving at 3 Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron 3AES. During my four years of service I have been involved with numerous Aeromedical Evacuations of serving members both domestically and internationally. However, the best experience I have had whilst serving in the military was assisting with the evacuation of Australian and foreign citizens from areas of conflict in the Middle East Region back to a safe location to facilitate their safe return to their home countries.
