So, a month before showing good soldiers the door, they start the advertising campaign for 10,000 new recruits…oh and the ‘reserves’ are under numbers aswell. Despite the fact that civvy employers are being offered financial incentives to hold open jobs whilst they go on tour.
Shame a redundant squaddie couldn’t have the job!
Now although that sounded suspiciously like a rant, (maybe it was, just a little bit) it was (also) infact a very clear reminder that we will be away from the not so good side of this life soon and today, this makes me happy.
When things like this happen, it makes me wonder why anyone would want to remain in an organisation that blatantly doesn’t give a damn about any of the men and women who put their lives on the line everyday.
So that, in a round about way, is my reason to be happy today!
What made you happy today?
