Page 2 of 83 Foreword The mission of the Defence Forces is to contribute to the security of the state by providing for the military defence of its territorial integrity and to fulfil all roles assigned by government through the deployment of well-motivated and effective Defence Forces. The Defence Forces continues to operate in a very demanding environment both nationally and internationally. Through this publication we hope to convey a sense of the dynamic, versatile and professional forces that are constantly evolving to meet the considerable demands placed on the organisation and its operational capabilities annually.
