Inaugural Afghanistan & Middle East Area of Operations Commemoration Service Where: Engadine War Memorial. When: Friday 12 July 2024, 5.15pm. * In response to the September 11 terrorist attacks, Australian military personnel and civilian staff from various agencies took part in campaigns in Afghanistan and across the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO) between 2001 and 2021. On 11 July 2021, all Australian Defence Force personnel had departed Afghanistan, bringing our nation’s longest war to a close. Australia’s participation came at a terrible cost. Forty-one lives were lost in Afghanistan and two lives were lost in Iraq and Kuwait, while many returned with long-lasting physical and mental trauma. Join the Engadine RSL sub-Branch for the inaugural commemoration service as we honour the service and sacrifice of our veterans and their families.
