Is it not about time the Military provided insurance, on par with Pax, whilst deployed on Operations. It has saddened me to find out that so many of our young soldiers who have paid the highest price have little or no life insurance. As a SNCO i have the luxury both of knowing the value of life insurance and the affordability to have it. A high number of our younger soldiers have made the gamble and lost and left their families with little. Some may say they should have been more responsible. however, Should it not be the Military's role to look after it's 'extended family' when the worst happens?
