Good Article on Veterans on 'Comment is Free' (What?)

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Ah, yes, well. It's not about us, it's by one of their American correspondents ...
    Given the requirement for Help for Heroes, problems with the TA and treatment, lack of recognition of GWS - we wouldn't come out of a similar analysis too well either, me thinks ...
     
  2. Unfortunately Idrach, this country has never done the right thing by its Armed Forces.
     
  3. Whereas the US does actually have a department of veterans affairs which seems to do a lot better.
     
  4. Oh dear chalk and cheese comparisons again. You might stop to think about US social service provision, health would be a good start. Think of how US veterans would fare without a VA dept! NHS may not be perfect but its a hell of a lot better than SFA.
