Defend Our Heroes - Poem by Jamie McDonald

It matters not if they laid down their lives, whether it be on domestic or foreign soil.

It matters not what war, peace keeping force or domestic duties they were assigned.

It matters not how many medals they wear or they don't.

What matters and makes them heroes is simple.

Without question they signed up or answered the call putting your life before theirs.

They allow us all the freedoms we enjoy and take for granted every day.

Pray for the fallen, support their families and support the returned soldiers.

Remember they are our heroes and look after them.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I am an Australian ex serviceman. We have our own problems here but I find the following fact disgusting.

In America one in four homeless men are ex servicemen.
