In his farewell speech, RFN Support Commander Marika Vosawale reminded the three sailors that they should continue to be good ambassadors for the Fiji Navy as they embark on professional rugby careers.
The three will depart with the Drua team for their training camp in Australia next week.
A total of 34 Drua players have been named so far with further signings to be announced in the coming weeks.
