So sad Heather - I've pinched it for our FB page - a fitting tribute

I'd rather it wasn't on facebook Maureen :( I share it here because I know it's safe. I have used real names in this poem and although I did ask, and receive permission from Jared MacKinney's widow to do that, I wouldn't want to have it shared around facebook without her knowledge and permission.

Brilliant poem Heather that I think will become a classic.

Another lovely and powerful poem Heather. The cost of war indeed - extra special that it's based on fact.
