Regular readers will know that I am a big supporter of the charity VIA = Veterans in Action. They fill a a big gap which exists between the actions of the MOD and the charity Combat Stress. VIA help members of the armed services reintegrate into society + assist ex sevicemen to come to terms with their traumas.
VIA can be found on their website: www.veteransinaction.org.uk
If you are interested in heping our troops get in touch with VIA
To their credit the MOD are doing more to highlight the difficulties that so many of our troops suffer - often many many years after their discharge.
The MOD film can be seen on the BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-15236239
