I was just wondering after hearing a few thing what happens to the payments of soldiers who have served in the army. I have very little knowledge on the matter and the last thing I want to do is insult anyone, that's not why I'm here. I am actually considering joining the army which is why I'm curious about a few things. I have heard it said that there's a lot of soldiers homeless and recently I saw a video of a soldier who served 9 years and is claiming benefits because he was unable to settle in to a job after leaving. Whats up with that. Do they blow their wages or something. I'm just really confused by this.
