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.
Would be good if we could extend the cause to include our troops here in the UK too...after all they are all fighting for the same cause and should all be given the same respect. They give up their lives for their Country's Government...the least the Governments can do id lay them rest at no cost to their grieving families.
these people are hero.s they die for us,,they deserve respect so why the hell should there family have to pay for them too be laid to rest
christ they have given thier lives what more do they want before some one wakes up.
As it has been said, it is the very least we can do.
They deserve better respect
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 fight for our freedom and sacrifice their own lives...isn't this enough to warrant a committment from this govt that when they protect us in life we will honour them in death.....It is about doing the right thing for their families.
