Victoria Cross Winner in Fiji Operations!

The most recent Victoria Criss winner is Australia's Ben Roberts-Smith. Mr Smith got the award for his bravery in Afghanistan.

But what has captured LF's attention is the following:

"He was deployed on operations to Fiji in 2004, and has also deployed on Recovery Operations..."

It is well documented that Australia deployed a Task Force in response to Qarase's request for military assistance but the Task Force withdrew from waters around Kadavu after a Blackhawk went into the water killing 2 soldiers.

But that was 2006.What sort of operation occurred in 2004?

Interesting isnt it?

I wonder why names like operations, military gets associated with Fiji. There is only few words that need to be associated with this island are travel and vacations.

Fiji all inclusive resorts
