Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed.

Today we remember the return of the Australian Defence Force's Overwatch Battle Group from Iraq. On 18 June 2008, C-130 Hercules transport planes from the Royal Australian Air Force brought home the final members. The Overwatch Battle Group was Australia's largest contribution to the Multinational force in Iraq, with over 500 personnel deployed to southern Iraq at one point.
