SSAFA Report: The new frontline: voices of veterans in need

Posted on: July 21st, 2016 by Stuart Hayward No Comments

SSAFA has published a report this July:

For many people, a veteran is an old man with medals and a beret, marching on Remembrance Sunday. The truth can sometimes be very different. We are now seeing a generation of men and women leave the services at a young age.

These men and women served their nation, but many of them do not feel supported by society, and some feel they have been disadvantaged. They contrast their experiences with those of their counterparts in the US and feel they have been forgotten.

This report gives them a voice.
