LEADING Aircraftsman Lee Crowell from Warwick has been in Afghanistan since March this year.

The 42-year-old is serving with the Combat Support Unit who provides Force Protection at Al Minhad Airbase as part of Operation SLIPPER.

Leading Aircraftsman Crowell lived in Warwick for 30 years before moving to Brisbane.

He worked for Rose City Shoppingworld security.

His father was also a manager of the Warwick RSL.

He has served in the air force for eight years and it is his first tour in Afghanistan.

He said he joined for several reasons.

"The security of the job and being part of a team for the country," he said.

Leading Aircraftsman Crowell said the weather in Afghanistan was vastly different to Australia.

He will return home in October and is looking forward to seeing his family again.

 

 The full story about Leading Aircraftsman Crowell and his experience in Afghanistan will be published in tomorrow's edition of the Daily News.
