I'm going to be doing a Masters this October. I really need to interview some local vets and servicemen. Would any of you gents (and ladies) be able to help me? My research question is: The issue of integrating ex-servicemen back into society is primarily one that has entered the public eye since 2006 and the escalation of the war in Afghanistan. But how was this handled from 1945? How did veterans become part of society (or not) after they left the Armed Forces in the Tyne and Wear region? If you want to help me, I can't offer anything in return. However, this is, in my opinion, valuable work that will go some way to helping people leaving the forces. So, if you're up for giving me a little of your time, please PM me with any stories you have about your career, why you joined up, etc. And we'll go from there. Much obliged.
