IOW Veterans Hub

I served for my country during the Falklands in 1982 on the HMS Intrepid at which time we experienced air raids 7 days a week, one day we were hit by a bomb which fortunately didn't explode, we experienced horrific situations down there. One of our scariest hours was when we pulled casualties and bodies off the SIR Galahad, This has left me personally suffering with PTSD, this causes me flash backs, nightmares, depression and anxiety. But i am not alone in this situation there are many more Veterans suffering the same way, Sadly many have taken their own life.

The problem now is due to this corona-virus, many Veterans are suffering with all their problems from serving their country and now living in isolation with nowhere to turn. There are many Veteran charities out there who are at the moment struggling due to no funds to help these Veterans, this situation is going to get worse and due to the psychological effect of being isolated will cause further problems. So i'm starting a go fund me page to raise funds for a Veterans Hub on the Isle of Wight, Due to the fact there is nothing for Veterans on the Isle of Wight. So when this is over we will be able to help our own in their time of need.
