Murphy’s training journey unfolded in three distinct phases during his overseas exercise. Beginning with an introductory stage, he received a comprehensive briefing on the program’s expectations and training modules.

Commodore King acknowledged Murphy’s impressive achievements, resilience, and dedication. He also expressed admiration for the young Marine’s significant feat, and Murphy was honored with the presentation of the Commander Defence Force’s coin.

Under the visionary leadership of Commodore Raymond King, the Defence Force remains steadfast in its commitment to enhancing its security posture through strategic recruitment, professional training, and resource acquisition. With a proactive stance, the force aims to strengthen its capabilities, ensuring readiness to confront evolving challenges and safeguard the nation.
