Just seems a bit aggressive to be honest. I am serving, I have done 2 Afghans and 2 Iraqs and currently the boys and supporting lads get nothing extra apart from lsa. I'm just trying to get a bit of appreciation for the fact that the cuts have now gone so far that most of us are entitled to no op bonus and are now paying for messing. We have a lot of people leaving the service and a lot of people deploying every 6 months. I do understand that there are barriers and mistakes made in the past (payd) but if no one does anything, then people won't see change.
Welcome to life pre-2006. the world turned then too.
