Des Browne, Secretary of State for Defence, said Tragically, I find that almost every other day, a post or news item which tells of the death of another service man or woman and yet I never fail to be touched by the moving words of their Commanding Officers and service colleagues which now always accompany this dreadful news. However, what is starting to grate, is the final sentence, Des Brown said. I have looked back on what seems to be an endless list of the fallen and re-examined those final words and believe its about time, that as Secretary of State for Defence he should personally research and script a fuller and heartfelt eulogy to fallen soldiers. How difficult would this be for a minister? He could directly contact COs, OCs friends and relatives and form a better and more genuine response on behalf of the country than the pitiful 25 word average. If you want the big job, than you have to take the fullest of responsibilities. These men and women died on his watch and their memory should be engraved on his and the governments conscience.
