British MOD are a disgrace - be warned contains rant
Some of you may know that my son-in-law was seriously injured whilst on active duty in Afghanistan. He has been left with a lot of problems physically and psychologically which he is battling to beat. He will never be able to wipe away the feeling of his friend being blown up in front of him, but he is literally being left to it by the MOD.
He was advised to apply for compensation for his injuries and the forms were filled in with the help of Band of Brothers - a charity that supports ex-servicemen and women - and checked by their law advisers. The forms were sent off full of expectation but the response has me totally floored.
According to the MOD not only did he not serve in Afghanistan but his friend didn't die either. ?? excuse me ??
So when he was medevaced from there and taken to hospital and convalescence in England for all those months didn't happen. They didn't remove half of his skull to repair the damage and he isn't paralysed on one side. How can they do this to people?
I really don't understand how far they think they can take this nonsense - he has payslips which show him on active duty and other proof of where he was. How many times can the government dump on these men? He doesn't want thousands or to be rich from this, all he applied for was enough money to pay for adaptions at home to help him cope with everyday chores.
They now seem to take the lives and the memories of our young men - they really are just cannon fodder.

For the sake of PersonaPaper, I declare this to be my own opinion and it is not a statement made on behalf of the site, they have nothing to do with this.
