when you leave the forces after years of loyal service you are tossed into civvy street with no help or support. Some obviously fall by the wayside and are forgoten and its a disgrace to hear that so many end up on the streets when so many illegal imigrants can come to this country and live like kings,, our government are a disgrace!

Ronnie Cameron absolutely. When my husband came out of the RAF we were in London. We went to get on the housing list and were told that every asylum seeker would be put on the list in front of us. My husband would have died for his country if it had been asked of him and that's the thanks you get. THIS COUNTRY IS A BLOODY DISGRACE.........

when my step dad got injured in Afghan, we got no support at all and we didn't get any support while he was out there ethier. Our soldiers deserve better and they need all the help and support they can get when they get home to help them and their familys get back to normality or a stable lifestyle. Its a fact that most soldiers that go on tour, come back with some sort of post traumatic stress. Its wrong that they are living on the streets after giving up soo much to help our country.

you got no support while your step dad was in Afghanistan was the fault of his unit not the government

I see many homeless in my profession as Paramedic and I am struck by how many of them (alot of them alcoholics) are ex services who either have had real bad luck or just could not adjust to being a civilian. If you are imprisoned there is some structure set up for the institutionalisation from being in the one environment and its time that this was recognised in ex services (there but for the grace of god go I ) and so this is why I support this cause.

I was homeless for just less than two weeks once and I met many people all with different stories about their lives. I was shocked at the number of soldiers who were traumatized and
should have been looked after.

When I've read that a large percentage of the homeless are our war veterans, I shrank back into myself asking WHY? These men and women need to be honored and supported when they come home - no question about this; the government & we the people MUST see to it that no veteran EVER will be homeless.
