Life After The Military- Written by Tommy Watson

In 1985, I joined the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and spent 26 years in service. I found transition relatively painless and totally immersed myself in resettlement and my entitlements.

Walking Home For Christmas: Bold.Brave.Memorable - Written by Andy Sloan.

The majority of people who read this will not be taking part in Walking With The Wounded's annual Walking Home For Christmas campaign. Why? Because although it's free to sign up, it requires a bit more commitment, a bit more organisation and a bit more oomph to line up a few friends, ask for donations and step outside your door when it is wet and wild outside and you have a list of jobs to do before Christmas longer than your legs. We like being comfortable.

Sleeping out for CEO Sleepout- Written by Joel Oxberry

As with most major cities in the UK, you do not have to travel far in Manchester to see people rough sleeping. It has always affected me but I have never tackled the issue head on, choosing instead, like most, to put the situation to the back of my mind. Not out of disrespect, but out of awkwardness brought on by the fact I cannot begin to comprehend what that person is going through, a powerlessness to help and a feeling that my face would give away my emotions.
