thease guys are giving there lifes everyday they deserve the up most respect for what they do they are brave young men and women who on a daily basis risk there lifes for others I think there should be free funerals for solders with full honours I will be paying my respects on sunday 11 nov at 11.00 am out of respect to past present and future solders me and my children will wear our poppy with pride.
they gave there lives for us, we owe them so much..
Thank you, and that is enough said right there!
I am a British Forces Veteran, and a Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank cheque payable to the United Kingdom for an amount up to, and including, their life.
Regardless of personal political views, it was an honour to serve my country, and there are way too many people in Britain who no longer remember that fact.
I think more Veterans should be like you, be proud to serve their country and wear their uniform. My step dad is a Veteran and all he has, is anger and hate for the army, although he says, he wants to do another tour, I dnt get it.
they have given thier lives what more do they want
They give their all the government should give this as a thank you to them and their families that are left behind who will not only be grieving but will need any help that can be given.
It is the right thing to do.
soliders don't get enough recongition nowadays, they give thier lives for our country, they deserve better, familys suffer. I should know, my step dad went on tour to afghan and got injured, it was appaling how it was dealt with.... I am currently joining the Army and think that soldiers should atleast deserve a free funeral out of respect if anything.
If we cant take care of them in life then we should take care of them in death.
All of our boys and girls should get a free funeral. They go to war so that we can live our lives in safety yet all they are to the powers that be is JUST a number and they couldn't give a shit.
They have gone from one family to another so the family should foot the bill. Come on Ministry of Defence you are now the head of the family so get your hand in that pockket and pay up!!!!!:-))))) Talk about TIGHT.
