British Veterans Joining UK Occupy Sites

The Guardian reports at least 15:

Other veterans at the Occupy sites also claim to suffer from problems linked to their service. Matthew Horne, 23, served in Iraq with the Scots Guards for eight months, until June 2008, and his experiences left him pondering the “futility” of war. He left the services 18 months ago, and says the Occupy movement has provided a platform to campaign for veterans who fought for a democracy but were denied support.

“I’m disgusted with the way this government deals with veterans who have left the services,” he said. Horne added that his service in southern Iraq made him wonder what they were actually fighting for.
