WHEN a sailor is on deployment,
it's always nice to get a letter from
home. But for two members of the
International Stabilisation Force (ISF)
letters from an unusual source.
Addressed simply to "An Australian
Soldier", a small box recently arrived on
the desk of ISF financial adviser LEUT
The box contained a bunch of goodies
including playing cards and letters from
Grade 5 students of Carnegie Primary
School in Victoria.
For LEUT Clarke and his offsider,
PTE Tony Wasin, it was a pleasant sur-
"We just happened to be the lucky
recipients of the goodwill package and
it was much appreciated," LEUT Clark
"It certainly put a smile on our faces."
The finance guys at the ISF's
Camp Phoenix in Dili are among 475
Australian and New Zealand personnel
currently deployed in East Timor.
LEUT Clarke said he felt proud that
young Australians knew of the work
being undertaken by the ADF and the
fact that many ADF men and women
were currently away from their loved
ones serving overseas.
"The letters were touching, some-
times humorous and very honest," he
"Out of the mouths of children often
come the most direct observations."

good job. I think that
you and the other

live and it is really
