    In 1914 my g/ fathers brother died 1st world war delville wood france no compensation it took 100yrs to get memor now displayed in castle. In the 2nd world war both my mothers brothers served and died receiving nothing. From 1970 -1971 military training from 1975 – 1984 I had 5 wives and served 5 x 3 month border duty military service. I have made numerous efforts to get military pension with no luck so it is all bullshit there is no pension only goverment bullshit .So to all the mothers and fathers out there stop your children from military service no country or leader is worth fighting for or giving your life up for .They must get out they only have one life. At my age now Angola is a sad memory of regret for the many 18yr old boys that died for THIS BANANA REPUPLIEK
