The Labour leader backs the Sunday People’s Save Our Soldiers campaign which demands that the Government properly funds support and rehabilitation services for veterans.
Our Armed Forces sacrifice so much for us and for our security. They also provide global peacekeeping and humanitarian support.
They should be thanked and rewarded for their courage and professionalism, and supported in coping with the physical and psychological consequences of their service.
Instead, many are left by the wayside upon their return, without support to adjust to civilian life and to access health and mental health services.
