Why we need RAFA, Royal British Legion, SSAFA, Combat Stress and others

The following article from the latest SSAFA Newsletter shows how much our political servants care for our service people: one day risking your life in Afghanistan, the next day risking your life trying to find a job in civilian life.  Those of us who have gone through this trauma know how difficult it is to adjust: either our service skills don't exactly match what is needed, we are too expensive to employ in the grades or positions available, as younger people with less experience but costing much less will do, or to add insult to injury you may be over qualified to employ.  The latter is the most depressing.
