‘TOO MUCH PRESSURE MAKING SOLDIERS of remembrance we turn our focus to the fallen soldiers of SUFFER MENTAL ILLNESS IN SERVICE’ the past, those who with pride
stared into the face of adversity for the sake of crown and country. These heroes of the past should never be forgotten for the bravery which they have displayed but what about those unsung veterans who are still still serving in an illegal war. Who will remember the soldiers who have sacrificed so much for their country? 77% of soldiers returning back from war, have been found to be sufferers of some form or the other of mental trauma. The city of Birmingham recently welcomed back the fifth regiment who returned back to the country last week and in a daring display of honor marched like soldiers in a salute to the comrades who they lost in the war.
