Neil Mitchell gets a soldier’s insight into Afghanistan
One of Australia’s most experienced soldiers in Afghanistan has shared his experiences on 3AW.
Paul Cale told Neil Mitchell he was “surprised” by allegations of war crimes committed by Australian soldiers and that nobody was “forced” to kill anybody in combat.
He said the allegations, if proven, were clearly in breach of the law and what the SAS stood for.
He provided a fascinating insight into the mind of a soldier on 3AW Mornings.
“I never lost a moment’s sleep over anything I’ve done, because I’ve always had to measure it up to my moral compass,” he explained.
“I always said to my guys that there is one person you’ll never escape for something that breaks your moral compass and that’s yourself.”
