The news that David Beckham is retiring has led to lots of tributes on radio calling him a hero. I have no interest in football but whilst he does appear to be a pleasant man who has done well for himself I don't consider him a hero.
On TV last night there was an item on the Royal Commandos coming home from Afghanistan, all those interviewed were modest, one saying he thought his wife had a tougher job taking care of 3 children under 5 on her own. In my mind these men are heros (whether you agree with our presence in Afghanistan or not).
