Amen to that.

The way this country treats our service men and women is a national disgrace. The politicians are quick to call on them when blood needs to be shed and even quicker to point the finger when things go wrong. Imagine for example PM Corbyn and Abbott telling troops to lay down their lives for the greater good.

However those same self serving "bar stewards" go missing when it comes to helping those and their families who have suffered for our country. What do they know of honour and loyalty.

Its time we had a British GI bill.

I'm actually quite tempted to come over for this. I don't think I will get received well doing it here.
I will, however, state I'm not entirely sure of the circumstances of Soldier F's deeds. Nevertheless, I completely disagree with charging serving personnel, or ex-forces for political purposes; in particular when worse atrocities by terrorists go unpunished.
I've seen several attacks first hand: not something to be taken lightly.
What has always bothered me most is the lack of real assistance for ex-forces members. I got some help from the Legion for my degree. I am grateful for that but my service has not seemed to be something that the government- or wider society - has been grateful for. Rather ex -squaddies seem to be an embarrassment these days. I doubt I am the only one to feel like this.
All of the men in my family served - we are one of those families. I will not be advocating that to any of my kids. Why bother?
You could well end up on the streets as many ex servicemen do. Civilian life can be a difficult adjustment.

if all veterans believed your politics (the problem being they aren't obvious from the facebook page).

I very much doubt you would get close to 1,000,000 real veterans; purely due to cuts to the forces since the 80s.

We could always use the armed forces to blockade the ports of Rotterdam, le Havre, Marseilles.....give the t.w@ts in Brussels something to think about.

Just an update, it seems(subject to police approval) that Fri 19th April(Good Friday . . . How poignant) will be the March. There is also a 'Rolling Thunder' also taking place with 6,500 Bikers signed up(so far).

NO money is required, just your support. Let your local MP know, write to the 'Times'(lol), but, please let them know they CANNOT continue to treat service men & women as badly as they have been, anymore.

Thanking you all in advance.

You're right. I rank both the treatment of ex service members and also of the elderly as a stain on our nation. It's surely not too much to ask to be looked after by the government when you've gone beyond the call of duty.

I hope this march does come off. As an American Veteran (Army) who served with British Military in Germany during the early 1980s I have a great deal of respect and admiration for members of the BAOR and the RAF Germany Command. We may have not seen combat but we were always on our guard. I also served with British Army personnel during my time in the Multi-national Force and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai in early 1986. For any soldier serving in a capacity that brings about peace where there hadn't been any for a very long time is the ultimate service one can perform. Therefore, I salute my comrades in arms and best friends any American soldier could have and wish we the very best.
