Deaths in Afghanistan
Oct, 21, 2010

As we at The British Forces Foundation are in the business of morale we cannot help but be deeply affected by the recent deaths in Afghanistan (including someone I personally knew quite well) and the unusually high number in such a short space of time.

There’s no question that this will have an impact on those still fighting but I’m in no doubt that the incredible character and professionalism of the men and women of Britain’s Armed Forces will show through yet again.

Critical effects on morale
Oct, 21, 2010
