The service of ‘our men and women in uniform’ has ‘made a difference to Afghanistan’

Deputy Labor Leader Richard Marles says he genuinely believes the "service of our men and women in uniform" has made a difference to Afghanistan "and the safety of the world".

"But what I know is that their service has made a difference to Australia," Mr Marles said during Question Time on Monday.

Mr Marles reflected on the recent events seen in Afghanistan in his address.
