Soldier's Heartbreaking Tale Of Struggles After Leaving The Army

This ex-army man tells Stig Abell his heartbreaking story of what happened when he left the military. Why don't we treat our soliders better?


This is the heartbreaking story of a former soldier who ended up homeless and almost died because he received no support after leaving the army.

Stig Abell was asking why military charities even need to exist - why don't we treat our military personnel better.

He got a call from Cody, who was discharged from the army with mental health issues.

He ended up homeless and with nowhere to go upon leaving and wasn't even allowed in a shelter because he didn't have an alcohol or drug problem.

Cody admitted he even considered suicide before a military charity helped him.

Listen to his powerful story above.
