Some British veterans end up in the criminal justice system, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has said, as a Government review is set to look into the reasons why some of Britain's veterans turn to a life of crime after they leave the armed forces. Mr Grayling said:
After leaving the armed forces the vast majority of veterans continue to make a hugely positive contribution to our country. But for a few the transition to civilian life isn't always straightforward...
I want to make sure that we take specific account of their needs and experiences and make sure that they get the right rehabilitation to get their lives back together again. It's the very least we can do for people who put their lives on the line for our country.
