Death of an Australian soldier in Afghanistan June 23, 2013

Australia mourns the loss of one of our soldiers in Afghanistan.

On behalf of the Coalition, I extend our condolences to his family, comrades and friends.

The Coalition's thoughts are also with two other Australian servicemen who were wounded in the same incident.

Only yesterday, the Avenue of Honour for our fallen soldiers in Afghanistan was opened at Yungaburra in Queensland.

Today, we honour another Australian soldier's life and sacrifice.

The death of this soldier is a reminder of the service and sacrifice of the Australian Defence Force.

Their work in Afghanistan is about making the world a safer place, so that it never again becomes a base for international terror.

All Australians are proud of the commitment and dedication to service of the men and women of the Australian Defence Force.

We stand with them on this sad day.
