Thank you for serving our country

Sheila Brits, Milnerton

Is it sensible to expect our military to parade their ‘finest and best’ equipment publicly to promote interest in their activities?

Maybe it would be better to realise that the police, army, navy, air force, and fire and rescue services are actually vital and consist of understaffed, underpaid men and women who put their lives on the line every single minute of every day, and we should be demanding that government funds go first to these people plus all who are employed in health care.

And we should say huge thank you to them and their families.

School-leavers should be encouraged to boost their ranks.

As a mother of someone who has to date 40 years service to credit, I say thank you all – every single day and night. For without you, we’re a pretty poor bunch.
