LEAD STORY: Lest We Forget
With a family member who perished on HMS Hampshire alongside Lord Kitchener in June 1916, and descending from strong military roots and as a member of the armed forces, remembrance has always been a key part of my family life. During October and November, we wear our poppy as a mark of honor and respect for our fallen, and to give hope to our present-day injured colleagues. It is for that reason that now feels like an appropriate time to launch the Woundcare4Heroes newsletter.
The injured servicemen and servicewomen of today are often in their twenties, and face a life time of injury and scarring management requiring our support 365 days of the year. Woundcare4Heroes has a mission to provide this support and keep the spotlight on our veteran community throughout the year. Through further growth of support networks, service delivery and educational events, we aim to make 2016 a year for supporting our injured servicemen and women coming onto the radar at Woundcare4Heroes.
