It was a proud moment for Josua Seduadua after he received the 50th Anniversary of Independence from the man who was his platoon commander in the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.

President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote smiled at Mr Seduadua and whispered to him as he pinned the medal on the retired soldier.

“I am so happy. Not only to be recognised by the committee and the nation but how befitting that my own platoon commander pinned the medal on me,” Mr Seduadua said.

“The 50th anniversary celebration is very important to the nation. I am urging all Fijians to unite and come together to celebrate this joyous day.”

Mr Seduadua over the years has made six Republic of Fiji Military Forces peacekeeping tours of duties in the Middle East and Africa. His last mission was in Sudan.

He retired in 2012 and now resides at his home in Naimasimasi in Tailevu.

He said as a soldier he served his nation because it was his duty to do so. He said over the years he has come to realise that it was everyone’s duty to do the best for the nation.
