What Happens To Soldiers When They Retire From The Army?


Many soldiers have left the army and many are about to leave the army. Nothing is planned for them for life after the army. This is not safe for a country. The country should evolve a policy of registering all those who are about to leave the army and find out what they want to do after leaving the armed forces. Such people should be assisted to further their training in areas that would earn them jobs with decent pay or provide a loan scheme that would enable then to conduct businesses. Risking one’s life for one’s country is not an ordinary sacrifice. Hence, no security personnel should be allowed to be impoverished after rendering national service.
