Tuesday 13th February 2018 - Messages from Overseas.

There are currently 585 Defence Forces personnel deployed to 13 different missions in 13 different countries around the world. Our personnel can only do the important work of peace because of the support they receive from their families and friends at home when they deploy.

Our largest troop missions are the 375 personnel serving with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the 135 personnel with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) on the Golan Heights in Syria.

There are also a number of Defence Forces personnel deployed in the service of peace to 11 other countries including Mali, The Democratic Republic of Congo and Western Sahara.
