Respect?

They don't have their own hospitals and now they can't stay in some hotels. What on EARTH is this country thinking of? The Government keeps calling for respect from its citizens yet it fails to respect those men and women, those sons and daughters, out there fighting our wars. Gordon Brown has turned up to the airport to welcome our sports people home, but never once has he turned up to welcome home our bodies, nor those who come home from fighting.

Some of us do, but it's not exactly a welcome (as in it's party time) It's more a mark of respect for a brave soldier who gave his all for an uncaring government involving our armed forces in (illegal) wars in which we should should not be involved.

Sorry about the Rant, Mort. Subject close to a nerve.

Second Rant One civilian ward in a hospital is not enough. Surely, a minimum of one taxpayer funded, fully equipped military is not too much to ask. There is one in Wiltshire, one near Lee-on Solent that could be re-commissioned.

This is NOT a matter for charities to fund, (as is current situation, Help for Heroes is funding a therapy pool for Hedley court near Guilford.)

OK Rant over. Sorry!

I wonder what's behind the policy? Is it political or based on a problem in the past?

I could understand banning lawyers or dentists...

It's thanks to Bones that I joined the British Legion. I didn't realise that anyone other than ex-servicepeople could join, and I don't think many other people do either.
