Don't carry your rank around: PM

By JONE KALOUNIVITI

Update: 3:22PM PRIME Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says your rank is not something that should be carried around in the disciplined forces.

He told this to soldiers after a church service arranged for the 4FIR and 5FIR families at the NASA Hall in Nadi.

Speaking in the iTaukei language, Commodore Bainimarama told soldiers that a rank was not something to tell other people that you were of high status but one of service.

Commodore Bainimarama said many people in Fiji were struggling to survive and it was their duty to help them get a second chance in life.

He also reminded them to look after their wives and children as they are the basic foundations of any strong military.
