Weekly Digest – The financial (in) security of our veterans
I was very proud to take part in the Remembrance Sunday proceedings in London yesterday alongside my father, a veteran himself. Nobody does these things better than the British and it was indeed a grand occasion which was made even better by the crisp sunny autumn morning. Dad was in his element, meeting up with old friends with whom he had served forty years ago. I was lucky to meet several of them at the regimental lunch which followed. Whilst I marvelled at their stories from days of old, I left the function a bit saddened by the fact that some of these brave men, now in the later years of their life, were not financially secure. Once again, the importance of investing for the long term rang loud and clear.
