READER'S VIEW: Bring defence force families to Rocky

NO MATTER which party we vote for, I think it is essential that Lisa Neaton's plan to resettle 400 defence force families here is supported to the hilt (TMB Sat. 11/06).

It is an absolutely brilliant idea and achievable, and regardless of whether she gets in or not, I think she should make it her mission to really push for this.

Common sense would show it is better for our defence personnel to be up here rather than down there.
