Soldier on

 Ludwig von Gress

For the flowers of contemporary Australian journalism like George Negus and Yumi Stynes the Anzac Day will be another source of hilarious jokes. Australian soldiers are a fair game for them, but somehow I doubt that they would poke fun at the soldiers of jihad.

Luckily, most Australians are decent human beings and quietly soldier on:

Soldier On helps soldiers, sailors and airmen who have been wounded, either physically or mentally, in contemporary conflicts. It is about Australians coming together to show their support for our wounded. It’s about telling our diggers that we will always have their back; that we will remember those who have come home, as well as those that have died. It’s about giving the wounded the dignity they deserve and the chance to do and be whatever they choose.

“Soldier On” is about the ANZAC spirit, and mateship and all Australians keeping their promise to take care of our wounded warriors.

 You too can help.

About Ludwig von Gress

Born in communist Europe, interested in defence matters on a macro scale, with a cavalry “devil may care spirit” from his grandfather and cautious effectiveness of asymmetric warfare approach from his guerilla father. He sometimes despairs that he may be the only one taking the defence of Australia seriously.
