With troops currently posted in Iraq, Afghanistan and other war zones around the world, this tribute is more omnipresent then ever.
During the past year, the number of British veterans seeking help for a mental health problem (after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan) has seen a 25 per cent increase.
Though the NHS treat many patients across the UK, unfortunately the availability of specialist trauma-focused services and professionals who have experience and training in treating combat stress is currently not high enough to deal with the demand.
The charity Combat Stress, the MoD and the Department of Health are all working together in a bid to improve and strengthen local NHS provisions but with 1,000 new referrals every year, it is more important than ever that we continue to show our unyielding support for our countries servicemen and women.
