 I’m doing The Forces March to give something back to ones that have been before us, and those who are still suffering with personal problems once they leave the armed forces. It is important to me as I’ve been there myself after serving 21 years in the infantry and being medically discharged in 2013. So I ask my friends, family to be kind and spend your hard earned money on a great charity that helps so many FAB.
