Wow! A Rob Youl Foreword!

It was a wonderful honor to have the very cool Rob Youl write and narrate the foreword to “Positive Vision: Enjoying the Adventures and Advantages of Poor Eyesight”. Rob Youl OAM RFD: Landcare worker, forester, sketcher, retiree, resident of South Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Rob was awarded the OAM, which stands for Medal of the Order of Australia, for involvement in national community conservation programs. Rob received the Reserve Force Decoration (RFD) in recognition of his long service as an engineer officer in the Australian Army Reserve.

He smiling; wearing a bush hat, shirt with a collar, sweater; and - as is fitting for a conservationist and forester - standing in front of large, leafy, healthy trees.
