There is a disconnect between those that have served their country and those who have not. Between veterans and the civilian population. I recognise there are many other ways of serving your country, but I’m a veteran so I choose to only speak from that perspective. There will always be a lack of understanding of veterans and the Armed Forces amongst the civilian population, it is in fact the point of what our job entails. We are the barrier between the civilian world and the other side of life that exists for them normally on the news and nowhere else.
