Personal details of soldiers killed in Afghanistan in insider attack
1 September 2012
It is with deep regret that the Australian Defence Force confirms that Lance Corporal Stjepan Milosevic, Sapper James Martin and Private Robert Poate were killed on operations in Afghanistan on 29 August 2012.
The three Australian soldiers were killed in an insider attack at Patrol Base Wahab in the Baluchi Valley region of Uruzgan Province.
Planning for the repatriation of the fallen Australian soldiers has begun although the date for their return to Australia has not yet been confirmed.
The families of Lance Corporal Milosevic, Sapper Martin and Private Poate are receiving support from Defence and have requested their privacy be respected during this difficult time.
