Risk of homelessness is all too common among veterans", says MSP.

SNP MSP Gordon MacDonald has called on the Ministry of Defence to do more to house former veterans – after shock figures revealed the number of army homes left empty has skyrocketed.

The figures, uncovered through Freedom of Information, show that the number of vacant MoD properties in Scotland has increased from 690 in 2013 to 1136 this year.

While some of these properties are in need of modernisation or have structural damage, many are considered “surplus” and could be used as homes.

The Way our Servicemen & Women are treated after the have completed there service contract is shocking & Disgusts me.
Its little wonder our Armed services are having a Big Problem recruiting, Prospective recruits can now see on-Line the "Thanks" they get from the Government for Risking there lives to keep us all safe.

its not enough that they come home and get spat on by isis supporters in our own country the government want to spit on them too and show them no respect for there service its absolutely apauling
I actually met a homeles veteran just before Xmas I gave him a couple of smokes and a quid to help him out sadly it was all i could afford to give him he was telling me how he was sleeping rough and hadent ate properly that day i tried ot direct him to a homeless shelter and told him to go use a foodbank voucher and get some food in his belly but he was too proud
he was telling me he couldn't get UC coz as a service man he had a pension or some shit like that he didn't explain it very well but he was only about 25 years old so not sure why his pension would matter but he seemed to think it was the reason he was rejected UC

I tell you this country has gone to shit :angry:

On a side note here. It seems the “Army” has been exploiting people on the “Workfare” scheme (Oct 2, 2018:@BoycottWorkfare@boycottworkfare.).

Who will be next in their ‘sights’ for their poster campaign. “Dole Wallahs”, “Hard Drug Addicts” (hey there plenty of drugs here in Afghanistan. :pinch: )
