New Zealand has raised a memorial stone in Afghanistan honouring its war dead. Beside it stand stones commemorating the many Afghan soldiers, police and security people who died alongside them.
Herald is taking a moment now to remember ten brave New Zealanders who made the supreme sacrifice in Afghanistan. The New Zealanders are our closest comrades, our neighbours and our friends. If Australia had to go to war, and Herald believes we did, then it is good our friends were with us.
Rest in peace, brave warriors.
Rest in peace
