They are a liability and put other lives at risk. It is for this reason that the humble boot becomes one of the most important items of equipment any soldier in an armed force will ever own, and therefore a soldier’s boots need to be well-looked after so that they will provide the protection, support and comfort necessary at all times.

5 Tips for Enlisting in the British Armed Forces

Deciding to enlist in the armed forces, in whichever branch you choose, be it the army, navy or air force, is a life changing decision. Being part of the military is not a decision to take lightly as it is not at all like a regular nine to five job. For as long as you are enlisted, the unit that you serve in will be your place of work, your family and your way of life. It is an all-consuming career and many civilians are simply not able to make the transition from being a free individual that answers to no one, to a trained soldier that operates under a chain of command.

Prosthetics for Troops

Last week saw the announcement of new prosthetic legs being issued to 
all injured servicemen and women with particular reference to new micro-processor 
knees.

The MOD has said today that the Government has made £6.5 million available
to ensure access to the most technologically advanced prosthetics, including the
Genium knee. Chancellor George Osbourne said, “Our troops are heroes who have
and continue to give absolutely everything for their country and it is only right that we
do everything possible to help them, especially when they suffer injury.” Read More…

Military Discount – If you don’t ask…

While some retailers publicise the fact that they offer military discounts there are many more that don’t but will if asked. Many larger high street sellers may not ‘officially’ offer discounts but when asked they are often willing to give a staff discount or match the student discount if they have one.
