James Martin

Australian soldier Sapper James Martin, age 21, died on August 29, 2012, in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan.

He was shot by a renegade local Afghan soldier. 

He was a member of the 3RAR Task Group based at Brisbane's Gallipoli Barracks.

James enlisted in the Army in 2011. 

Angels of God, pray for James
Military officials describe him as an intellectual soldier who was well respected by his comrades and was considered a loyal friend and comrade. 

He was also a big fan of Australian football and enjoyed playing bass guitar for his mates. 

James is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother, Suzanne Thomas; his younger brother, Angus; his sister, Holly; and his grandparents, Lucille and Ralph Thomas. 

Pray for the 21 year olds who die in combat. Yesterday, they were just boys. 

Let us pray that James Martin is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
