Mat speaks with Afghanistan veteran, Matthew Botcher and Sean Mulqueen from 42for42 about the importance of remembering Australia’s fallen in Afghanistan – the longest war Australia has been involved in, extending over 10 years, with Operation Slipper running from 2001 to 2014. More than 26,000 Australian soldiers served in Afghanistan, with 41 of these soldiers killed in action. Others lost their lives in training before shipping out, and through taking their own lives on return home. 42for42, a not-for-profit, is undertaking the incredible task to build a Memorial Garden for Afghanistan adjacent Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. You can help the fundraising effort by buying a raffle ticket, participating in or sponsoring a team in the 42 hour walk around Suncorp stadium, or making a tax-deductible donation, learn more here:
