Anyone noticed that if anyone has ever served in the army, its always mentioned in the media, if the individual has done something. For example, the guy in Newcastle, who killed members of his family. He handed himself into the cop station afterwards. My point is this..he served in gulf War 1 in the artillery, but has been out for years. Why does the media have to say' a former soldier has been arrested for the....'. Christ, the guy has been in civie life probably longer than he was a squaddie. Why couldnt they say..' a plumber from.... has been arrested today for.. well you get my drift anyway. It just annoys me that they always have to drag up their past job, if they were in the army at some point in their life.
