Military service is not for the faint-hearted. Leaving behind family and loved ones, the comfort and familiarity of home, and placing yourself in life threatening situations for your country, is one of the toughest jobs there is. Matt Walker, an ex-special forces Green Beret from the UK has adjusted back into civilian life and works as a personal trainer and Jujitsu coach. He shared what it's like serving in the military, the disconnect a service-person feels once they leave, and the best ways you can support a returning serviceman.
If you or a military veteran you know is struggling mentally or with employment, Soldier On works side by side with those who serve and protect our country. Phone: 1300 620 380
