TREVOR’S wife Luba says the Min­istry of De­fence’s treat­ment of her hus­band and other PTSD vet­er­ans is dis­grace­ful.

Speak­ing of the day they were given 28 days to leave their Army house, Luba said: “I was look­ing af­ter Trevor, my son and also hav­ing to work.

“The pres­sure was huge. I thought to my­self, is this how the Gov­ern­ment treats sol­diers who risked their lives fight­ing in Iraq and Afghanistan? It was dis­gust­ing. Luba added: “If Trevor did not have such a strong fam­ily he would have fallen to pieces. The MoD’s at­ti­tude is dis­grace­ful.”

An MoD spokesman said yes­ter­day: “We recog­nise that a small num­ber of vet­er­ans strug­gle, and that is why we work across Gov­ern­ment and with char­ity part­ners to pro­vide a com­pre­hen­sive pack­age of sup­port.”
