We generally get treated like scum in our own country it's all bollox. I think we should start a campaign to get wider recognition from the country we serve to protect. In the US they walk aound in uniform and people buy them drinks, not as over here, smash the beer bottle over your head. One thing I would like to see is the same benefits for members of the armed forces as students get with their NUS cards. After all, we actually work and aren't tax avoiding, drug taking chavs like many students. Most places in the US seem to give discounts for their service people and our country should follow suit and give us some recognition.
