British Afghan veterans said they were “still our heroes”

Thousands of people and many celebrities have supported online campaigns to help Afghan veterans fight and fall into bloody turmoil.

TV presenter and Army veteran Rav Wilding, and help for heroes patrons Ross Kemp, Lorraine Kelly, and Sun columnist Peta Cavendish have joined Twitter. We are boosting the #StillOurHeroes hashtag on Twitter.

Former Veterans Minister Johnny Mercer posted a #StillOurHeroes video aimed directly at veterans. He states: Your service.

“I’m incredibly proud of you. You can’t control it and I’m in your service and in some of the toughest situations the British have ever fought. I can’t be proud of what we did. “

The International Development Labor Campaign, which is a member of the Labor Party, wrote on Twitter: It wasn’t in vain, you are #StillOurHeroes. “

Help for Heroes launched its campaign as the withdrawal from Afghanistan constantly raised the question of “is it worth it?” And many veterans have come to question the value of their services.

Charities deal with many veterans whose clinical staff must handle painful memories, sights, and sounds that cause traumatic experiences, affect self-esteem, and have a direct impact on mental health. Say there is.

Thousands of people are currently participating in the campaign online, and many civilians post positive messages of support and appreciation for veterans.

Carroll Betridge, Head of Clinical and Medical Services at Help for Heroes and former British Navy Captain who worked in Afghanistan, said:

“We all need to be aware of their service and the sacrifices they have made. Each of them makes a difference, and we tell them and their families, their courage, and their achievements. We need to let them know how proud we are. “
