The strength of a nation is intricately tied to the strength of its women, families, and communities, and this strength encompasses not just physical prowess but also character, resilience, and determination.
This was highlighted by Sulueti Rabuka while addressing military wives during a gathering to celebrate the remarkable role played by the military wives in the success and well-being of Fiji with the theme of Strong Women, Strong Families, Strong Communities.
Rabuka underscored that this theme was not a mere collection of words but a profound reflection of the essence of Fiji's society.
She expressed deep gratitude for their unwavering support and dedication by these women to the nation knowing the unique challenges, sacrifices, and responsibilities that come with being military wives.
She says in the context of the military community, strength encompasses enduring separations from loved ones, supporting partners through challenging deployments, and maintaining households amidst the demands of a unique lifestyle.
Rabuka acknowledged the military wives as unsung heroes, the backbone of support, and the driving force behind their loved ones in service and says their strength is not only evident in their resilience but also in their ability to adapt to the challenges that military life presents.
She says in their communities, military wives play a vital role in promoting understanding and unity among diverse backgrounds and cultures.
She adds Fiji's strength lies in its people, and military wives are an essential part of that strength.
Rabuka also commended the military wives for their ability to maintain confidentiality regarding sensitive information related to their spouses' work, emphasizing its crucial role in ensuring the nation's safety and security.
