What You Leave Behind

Another piece of red left my atlas today.

Last week, following a few years behind their friends in Uruzgan the Dutch, Australia has withdrawn maneuver forces from AFG.
Mr Abbott has announced that Australian troops have completed their withdrawal from Uruzgan Province, bringing an end to Australia's longest overseas combat deployment.

During the 12-year mission, 40 Australian soldiers were killed and 261 were seriously wounded.

Around 400 Australian military personnel will remain in Afghanistan in training and support roles, mostly in the capital, Kabul, and in Kandahar.
Along those lines - I think I will let one of the Diggers outline the rest.
