vC winner named
of the year
Trooper Mark Donaldson VC hopes being awarded the 2010 Young Australian of
the Year earlier this year will inspire all Australians to do more for their country.
The honour comes a year after Trooper Donaldson became the first Australian
Defence Force member in almost 40 years to be awarded the Victoria Cross –
Australia’s highest military honour.
Trooper Donaldson described the award as a great honour.
“Even though I have been singled out, I feel the award is a reflection of the pride
Australians have for their men and women in uniform,” Trooper Donaldson said.
“Not many other professions or trades demand as much of its members, and the
contribution they make to society is unique.”
Trooper Donaldson was awarded the Victoria Cross for acts of bravery in
Afghanistan. His actions ensured the safety of his comrades, and saved the life
of a coalition force interpreter.
Trooper Mark Donaldson, VC, can now add the title of Young Australian of the Year after the
honour was bestowed at the 2010 Australia Day awards.
