Families remember fallen
Army was in their blood
AMAZING DAUGHTER: Jacinda Baker and her partner Geoff Fosbender last New
Year's Eve on Stewart Island. They have been together for close to two years.
THE FAMILIES of the three soldiers
killed in Afghanistan on Sunday
remembered them in statements
Jacinda Baker was an amazing
daughter, partner, sister, grand-
cousin, niece, friend and soldier''.
She was a girl full of spirit, always
ready for her next adventure. She
was fearless and would give any-
thing a go.'' Her family described her
as their rock.
She was the one to turn to if you
needed someone calm, with practical
help to get you through whatever it
was you were going through. She
was proud to be a medic in the New
Zealand Army, proud of the work she
carried out, and we in turn were and
are so incredibly proud of her.''
Luke Tamatea took his job in the
Army extremely seriously and was
very proud of his service. He had
wanted to be on the first flight in
response to the 2004 tsunami, as
this meant he could make the most
difference in people's lives''.
The Army really changed his life
around''. He was described as a natu-
ral leader and consummate profes-
sional but his proudest achievement
is in his family he is leaving behind
who will miss him most, particularly
his four beautiful daughters who will
remain his legacy''.
Richard Harris was such a good
boy who loved his whanau dearly
and loved life''. He was a laid-back,
quiet, fun-loving, mischievous guy
who would light up the room with his
smile. He had a passion for rugby
and in his free time he liked chilling
with the bros''. He grew and
matured into a really cool young man
who we are all so proud of. Richard
loved the Army and was looking for-
ward to going to Afghanistan.''

have become vacant recently as Burnham person-

while yet reporting for duty at Burnham.''
The board also liaised with Burnham School --
with its roll of army and civilian children -- pres-
enting a leadership cup every year at the school.
Lt Col Don Bulmer said Burnham's history of
attending board meetings was to ensure the camp
connected with the Selwyn district so people
know what we were about, and to clarify issues for
The army was very keen to demystify its oper-
ations at West Melton Range and also spell out the
importance of its capability to engage in our pro-
fessional military business''.
Clearly, we have an operational output and
need to conduct training, some obviously with
weapons systems, and the like . . . these are not
normal activities in a community.
We are quite a sizeable group there and it is
important we maintain our community con-
