There are calls for more support for servicemen and women as they adjust to civilian life.
A mother from Dumfries whose son hanged himself after coming out of the armed services says that the government isn't doing enough to help.
Nicola Howat says her son James Lindsay was haunted by flashbacks and nightmares after a tour of duty in Afgahnistan.
A charity for veterans, First Base Agency, has backed Mrs Howat's pleas for the Government to take greater responsibility for the health and well-being of former soldiers.
Mark Frankland, manager of the First Base Agency, said that the charity had helped James who was a frequent visitor to their therapeutic gardens.
In response the Ministry of Defence issued a statement.
