Falklands War veteran Simon Weston has told ITV News there needs to be "proper care after combat" to ensure returning troops "get taken care of".
Weston, who was aboard the Sir Galahad when it was destroyed during the Falklands War, said, "There is no peace dividend in reality because the cost is still there after combat."
He warned service personnel returning with post-traumatic stress disorder can turn to drink and to drugs, saying, "There is a real issue around that because then we see people falling foul of the law."
