ticking timebomb

This was discussed on my last visit to HoC. Andrew Murrison MP and Nick Harvey MP both said this was an area that needs more investigation done… Strangely this report has just come out.

Soldiers' children face 'ticking timebomb' of problems - says charity
The emotional, psychological and financial problems faced by children of armed forces serving in Iraq or Afghanistan are not being adequately addressed - report finds

Sadly the MoD have a record of treating servicemen as disposable assets, the problem is multiplied when they become ex-servicemen.

Fantastic service charities step in, but they often have limited resources. Somehow I just cannot see the MoD being too interested in Forces children.

As an example look how woefully the British Nuclear Test Veterans have been treated.
