25th June 2020: Marking Armed Forces Week

Today is Veterans Day on Armed Forces Week and all of us from the ADVANCE Study would like to say thank you to our Veteran participants as we salute our Forces.

ADVANCE participant Ben in Afganistan

In the photos above is one of our participants, Ben, who is an ex Royal Engineer and currently helping us recruit the last few participants to the Study. We asked him what the best part of the day on his ADVANCE visit was. Ben replied: ‘I enjoyed the accessible nature of the day; a great way to connect with like-minded people. Meeting other participants who share the same experiences, who understand ‘what it was like’ in Afghanistan on any Op Herrick.’
