The outstanding recipients of the Force Commander’s Award were MFO lifeguards, Fiji Navy Lead­ing Seaman Eparama Rokoyaya and 3FIR Infantryman Private Se­tareki Vulalima. They were duty lifeguards at the MFO Herbs Beach on the shore of the Red Sea at South Camp where they managed to res­cue two fellow peacekeepers from drowning.

In his citation, the Force Com­mander stated that LS Rokoyaya and Pte Vulalima courageously dis­played their capability during the rescue.

“Through their training as life guards, they have displayed true comradeship and dedication to duty to overcome all odds and res­cue two members of the Multina­tional Forces and Observers,” he said.

MFO medal recipients at the pa­rade included members of the Re­public of Fiji Military Forces, Fiji Corrections Services and the Fiji Police Force who have completed their 12 months tour of duty with the MFO.
