We got to meet Jim when he first came back from Iraq, around 18 years ago. His clear thinking, warmth and unashamed patriotism were obvious to any who met him.
Jim will be remembered as a soldier, a Senator and a patriot. His last great work was the publication of his book ‘Danger On Our Doorstep’. This carefully constructed and researched book should be essential reading for anybody involved in Defence. The clarity and detail with which he approached the subject is a gift to all of us and a great credit to him.
We’ve lost a great Australian!
