Do you know a former reservist suffering from ptsd? Do you possibly fit that description, yourself? For too long, this Government has ignored the facts: while members of the regular armed forces have at least some network to fall back on to, reservists are on their own when they get back to civvy street. They are expected to cope by themselves, or appeal to a charity for support. Often, not even close work colleagues know what they're going through. I am a journalist who covers defence issues, and I think it's about time this issue was highlighted properly. Yes, reservists are volunteers, yes they know what they are signing up for, but why does this mean they should be treated as second class citizens? If you are a former reservist who has had experience of these issues, I welcome your comments. If you are willing to go on the record for the purposes of an interview, all the better, but it's up to you. Please feel free to email me or leave your comments here. Thank you.
