Operation TAMAR Honoured

The bravery and sacrifice of the veterans of Operation TAMAR, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Rwanda, was commemorated on Saturday in a service conducted by Governor-General David Hurley. The Meritorious Unit Citation Warrant was presented to each service chief on behalf of the 14 Royal Australian Navy, 629 Australian Army and 44 Royal Australian Air Force personnel who risked their lives to rescue survivors of the Kibeho Massacre.
