The letter from John Andrews about modern day soldiers not being genuine heroes disgusts me, to be honest.
I am a serving soldier in the regular Army and have lived in Grantham all my life. Having done a summer tour in Afghanistan last year and 2 previous tours of Iraq I know first-hand how heroic our Armed Forces really are.
I know everyone is entitled to their opinions, but does this man really live on the same planet as everyone else?
I would invite this man to meet me for a chat about the subject - does he really think he can say this without getting people irate?
