Warrant Officer Class 2 Scott Warby
Throughout his career he has been posted to a range of units including 3RAR, School of Infantry and, most recently, the Combat Training Centre where he assists in preparing soldiers to deploy on operations overseas.
He has deployed on operations to the Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste and Afghanistan as well as domestic border protection.
In 2011 while deployed to Afghanistan he was shot in the right lower-leg. Passing through the muscle, the round missed the bone but he later experienced complications.
WO2 Warby said as soon as he heard about the expedition he thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
“I believe the expedition will bring back some of the confidence and sense of purpose that I feel I have lost since my injury,” he said.
“I became aware of the importance of rebuilding myself as a soldier and not let one incident destroy my desire to be the best soldier I can be.
“I want to show other soldiers that you can come back bigger and better than before.”
