Kia Kaha, Kia Maia, Kia Manawanui My Son

…and above all return safely to us in 6 months time.

My son, Campbell has today left for a 6 month posting to Afghanistan with OP CRIB 17. He is to be stationed at Bagram Airbase just north of Kabul where he and a small contingent of Kiwis will maintain communications and logistics for the wider spread NZ force. (The larger group will go to Bamian province to replace those currently working there.) Obviously he is very excited about this operation as is any soldier about overseas service, and his previous experience (when posted there in 2005) has not deterred him from wanring to be back in this sad country.

Our hearts and thoughts go with him, and all of the other young soldiers who are in country. May you all be safe, and return home in one piece as soon as can be.

Should we be there?
What some Kiwis think

    • Looking forward to having him home some time in April. I’m counting down but he says he’s not because it makes the time pass too slowly. All he’s counting are the rpgs the baddies keep firing into camp!!! Get him home and have a few beers and a game or two of golf- all good.
