"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

SAS troops are not the only Australians involved in combat.

The Australian military commander in Iraq has revealed Australian soldiers are fighting on the front line with American and British units.

SAS soldiers are the only troops widely known to be on the ground inside Iraq.

An Australian contingent commander, Brigadier Maurie McNairn, says about 33 Australians are deployed on exchange programs with UK and US forces.

Some are fighting on the front line.

"A number of them are certainly in harm's way at the moment," he said.
