Forgotten Heroes

Not only those who fight and die
But those who watch a screen and sigh:
They also serve who push a switch
And leave the field with mental twitch.
The bravest feat of British arms:
To game away their moral qualms;
For, if we doubt these propositions,
What medals then for politicians?
