Corporal Michael Hartnett
At 26, the Australian Army Corporal says the task can be a risky one.
“The role of the team leader of the drive team involves many challenges,” Corporal Hartnett said. “There’s lots of preparation, planning and the unpredictability of the threat levels and traffic conditions in Kabul.”
It is the first time Michael has deployed to Afghanistan and says the experience has been a unique opportunity.
“I joined the Army in 2008 for a great challenge,” he said. “I’ve worked very hard to get here. I’m definitely making the most of it while I’m here and doing the best job I can.”
Corporal Hartnett is one of about 400 ADF personnel in Afghanistan’s Kabul and Kandahar supporting the International Security Assistance Force mission to train, advise and assist the Afghan National Security Forces.
Australia will continue to support Afghanistan’s security, development and governance throughout 2014.
