AS HE coordinates BRIG Bruce
Scott's personal security and protec-
tion requirements for senior visits in
southern Afghanistan, SGT Peter Ma-
digan waits for news from Australia on
the birth for his first son.
Although at time of print SGT

the time he returns home from his
six-month deployment at Kandahar
Airfield (KAF), his boy will already
be five months old.
"I'm pretty excited. We haven't
decided what his name is going to be
yet," SGT Madigan said.

RAAF Base Amberley's 2 Airfield
Defence Section (AFDS), SGT

"BRIG Scott is the first Australian
officer to hold the position of Deputy
Commanding General for Force
Development for Headquarters
Regional Command South," SGT
"My job is to provide him with
close personal protection when he
travels. I look after his movements,
which involves arranging his protec-
tion for diplomatic or representational
visits throughout Afghanistan.
"It can be pretty challenging at
times but we are working with some
real professionals over here and we
are well prepared."
SGT Madigan completed the
