The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association (RNZRSA) congratulates Major General Rhys Jones on his appointment as the new Chief of Defence Force.

"Our thanks to the outgoing Chief of Defence Force Jerry Mateparae for his commitment to the veterans of New Zealand. We will always remember General Mateparae’s emphatic and landmark lifetime commitment to care for veterans and their families at the time of Tribute08.”
