RAAF personnel return home from Afghanistan operations

New Australian defence minister keeps forces on alert"

Australian personnel have just been welcomed home by their families at RAAF base Amberley, the largest Air Force base in Australia with over 5,000 people employed.

Senator David Johnston welcomed the personnel at the airbase when they returned home, offering his thanks and support for their efforts. He explained that the mission in Uruzgan has now finished, after collaboration both internationally and with the government of Afghanistan.

"Australia's outstanding work, along with that of our international partners, has led to demonstrable improvements in security, development and governance capacity in Uruzgan. Our focus will now be on providing support and assistance to Afghanistan at the national level," he said.

In the region, Australian personnel have been involved in security, engineering and logistics, as well as the continued operation of aircraft. Support roles such as these are vital, especially when aircraft are constantly involved in patrols.

"MNB-TK Command and Security Force personnel provided a critical air base capability while simultaneously preparing the base for the handover to Afghanistan authorities. Air Force personnel have served with professionalism and honour and they have earned the respect of coalition and service partners," Air Marshal Geoff Brown said.

While the majority of personnel have been withdrawn, this is not the end of Australian involvement in Afghanistan. Personnel are likely to be deployed again this year to support national efforts, in similar logistics roles. These support endeavours have ensured smooth operations in the region.
