    3 Killed in Bamyan

    The worst sort of news to wake up to this morning:

    Three Kiwi soldiers killed in Afghanistan
    NewstalkZB | 05:39am Mon 20 Aug 2012

    Three New Zealand soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan.

    They were serving with the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Bamyan.

    The Defence Force says the last vehicle in a convoy was hit by an improvised explosive device, northwest of Do Abe, on the road to Romerao

    My sincerest thoughts and condolences to family and friends Rest in peace my brothers in arms. You have served your country well and have selflessly paid the ultimate price. This is a sad occassion. All of the old soldiers on here will have hats off and hands on hearts.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them".

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I'm getting really disheartened by more and more news stories like this. As I am sure all your boys can relate, it feels like one of your family is gone. Even though you have never met them and now never will, it's still so close to home. I had a great weekend and am on a pretty big downer now. All my thoughts go out to everyone feeling the same way in our NZDF family.

    Dougie it is OK to feel impacted by this news. We all will be in one way or another. No parent should ever have to bury a child and no amount of parental pride in the achievements of a child can provide solace when they are called upon to do so. I too am deeply saddened. It is fitting that we are.

    The names are: Lance Corporal Jacinda Baker (26), Private Richard Harris (21) and Corporal Luke Tamatea (31). Lance Corporal Baker, a medic, is the first female New Zealand soldier to be killed in action since troops were sent to the country.
