    Yeah, fair play to those boys and girls...

    I don't wish to get into a discussion about the politics behind what our armed forces are doing, and where - obviously that's often a pretty sticky subject - but regardless of whether I happen to agree with the particular scenario or not; I've always got support for the lads and lasses at the sharp end. They make a good job of tough work and I think as a nation we should seperate logistics from politics a bit more and then show our gratitude to those who have comfortably earned it.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    :applaus::applaus::applaus:Those people put their lives on the line every day for us they deserve so much more than medals. It takes an amazing person to join the armed forces. Well done guys I agree with Voorhees Im proud to be British.


    On a lighter note...those kids have got to be yours...That boy is a spit of you :)

    It's nice to hear positive things from the public. I met a women in the pub last weekend who was nearly in tears when she left because she seemed to admire me so much just for having been to Afghanistan. It was pretty strange to be honest.

    I think part of it was because it brought back memories from when she was in the forces.

    The other part may have been the alcohol! lol

    So glad to read this Chris, its shameful the way they've been treated given what they've done for us in the past, I'm disgusted that it was even on the table to do or not, it shouldnt have even been a discussion IMHO, Brown has to go asap & yeah good to see troops back & no idiots shouting at them this time, my mates just joining up for training from tuesday up near another forum member so when he's done does worry me what will happen to him, but he's clever lad so hopefully he'll do as he's told & stay alive when posted.
