Veterans ID card

Re: Veteran's ID card

Seems the readership of the Independent are a wee bit anti-veteran!!!

Probably the same conchies who win wars from armchairs and would complain about the right to complain.

Agreed, but you will alway get disrespectful people in every walk of life. I've seen some extremely disrespectful views aired in threads on RR too. I was always taught if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. :thumbright:

I'd agree, but then again I'm not lingering on some NHS waiting list hoping to visit a trick cyclist for PTSD or waiting for treatment for severe tinitus, or damaged knee joints or...........................

I expect those who are will leap at the opportunity to have their treatment sped up despite the thought of becoming a test population for the ID card scheme. When I recently went to my doctor about going deaf and possible treatment for tinitus the first thing he asked was whether I served in the Armed Forces - maybe the message is getting through without the ID card?
 
Re: Veteran's ID card

I must admit having been a faithfull and reguklar net contributor to the system for some 45 years I am willing to take anything on offer that benefits me and mine, it that means carrying a Veterans ID Cartd so be it.
 
Re: Veteran's ID card

My writer "forgot" to ask me for my ID card when I left and coming to the USA it has been used many times over the yrs. Going up the Empire State building, 50% off, cinemas, Mickey duck and has also got me out of a speeding ticket or two.

But THE biggest thing here is "my fellow Americans" still do not believe me when I tell them that when you leave, the gate hits yer ass and its dont come back Jack. No benefits, medical dental etc etc, nada zip zilch squat

Re: Veteran's ID card

When I left the gates of Drake barracks for the last time, I didn't even get a 'thank you' 'kiss my arse' or anything,
It was more a case of "just hand your ID card over and return various items of kit back to Slops...you know where the main gate is, close it when you go out" and that was it I was a civvy :)

I enjoyed my time in the mob, but I have also enjoyed my time out of it :D

In the best traditions of the Service, last time I went to the States, I furnished myself with a 'Vet's' ID card -colour photo, lots of crowns and crests, the immortal words 'If found, return to the nearest Royal Naval establishment' etc etc, then laminated! Worked a treat - all the hotel discounts we needed! :D :D

'If found, return to the nearest Royal Naval establishment'

I needed something like that around my neck when I was out on the piss in Guz or Pompy

It seems to me that the Government is slowly but surely taking up Robert A. Heinlens 'Starship Troopers' service for Citizenship idea, whereby you serve in the Forces and are then entitled to vote, take part in Politics etc.
First the Veteran's badge and now the Veteran's Card.
Surely exclusive suffrage for Ex and Serving Forces people can't be far off. 8O

PS Expecting the return of Norman soonest!
