I suppose it is cheaper than paying for proper medical treatment and pschcological treatments for those in real need! When will this bloody government realise, that is the right support is there at the right time for what ever the reason, they will be far more respected, that just lets give the poor lads a bloody medal. The USA have a 24 month 'Veterans Programme', where they the individual and their family are helped to move forward after what has been a life changing experiance. What do we get here? A fight with the Mod to get the recognition for the harm they have sustained while serving their country! A Bloody Medal, what an insult, proper medical care and follow up would be what most would want!
