Statement from the Moerland family

We would like everyone to know how proud Jacob was to serve his country. Jacob

wanted to join the army from an early age and he loved his mates and his job and I 

have never seen Jacob so happy as during his march out parade.


Jacob died doing the job he loved and he went to Afghanistan not because he had too,

but he thought it was a valuable job to help the people in Afghanistan.

I am so proud of my son Jacob. I love him and miss him very much.

Mrs Sandra Moerland & sisters Bethany and Laura.
