We’re again inviting young Combat Engineers to join us on the tour
Following many discussions with sections of the Army and in particular the Corps of Engineers, a big aim for us on this tour is to invite and mentor current serving Combat Engineers. Many Combat Engineer Afghanistan veterans are suffering high levels of PTSD. We know what that’s all about - and it’s our duty and our privilege to take these soldiers on a journey with us, back to the scene of our conflict, to show them that incredibly positive things can come out of the combat experience. We’ll share with them, how decades later we go there and honour our fallen comrades. We’ll show them that, in our case at least, we can meet with former enemy, on the same level - as old soldiers. We’ll visit the sites of incidents with men that were involved in those incidents - and see that it can be a healing process. And perhaps best of all, and probably over beers at the end of each day, we’ll show the incredible comradeship we enjoy, and how this comradeship extends equally to them, our brother Sappers.
