I am a career soldier who has spent over 30 years in the military. From guarding Rudolph Hess to fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan my life has been shaped by the military. I have been awarded 'The Queens Commendation for Bravery' and the 'Military Cross'. I have gone on to write 2 books about Afghanistan with a third due shortly. I am presently a local authority councillor.
