Inaugural Middle East Area of Operations commemoration

Where
Cenotaph
Cenotaph
Martin Place, Sydney NSW 2000
When

Thursday 11 July from 11am to 12pm

In response to the September 11 terrorist attacks, Australian military personnel and civilian staff from various agencies took part in campaigns across the Middle East Area of Operations between 2001 and 2021.

On 11 July 2021, the Minister for Defence confirmed 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. Their service and sacrifice have helped to save Australian lives from terrorist attacks on our own soil.

Join RSL NSW for the inaugural commemoration service as we honour the service and sacrifice of our service personnel.
