Daniel Keighran VC
Daniel Keighran VC is one of only ten living recipients of the Victoria Cross worldwide. In 2010, whilst on his second deployment to Afghanistan, his team became involved in a serious firefight with a numerically superior enemy force. During the three hour firefight, Daniel repeatedly and deliberately exposed his own position in order to draw enemy fire towards himself and away from his team mates who were treating a casualty. For his actions, he was awarded Australia’s 99th Victoria Cross.
“I got involved with Mates4Mates because it provides a holistic approach to the needs of modern day returned servicemen and women.”
