UK sacks Iraq Vet Sergeant Lee Nolan 3 days before he gets his full pension, Several similar cases also emerge
They can’t really be doing this, can they? Classifying them as redundant just before they qualify for a pension? That would be despicable.
Don’t tell Barry. We wouldn’t want to give him any ideas.
An Iraq war veteran was made redundant just 72 HOURS before qualifying for a full Army pension.
Sergeant Lee Nolan will lose out on at least £100,000 after he became one of 20,000 soldiers who are being axed in savage military cuts.
He was so furious at losing his job, his Army home and financial security after risking his life for his country that he sent his six military medals to David Cameron.
And in a moving letter to the PM he wrote: “The events of the past 12 months have turned my life on its head and sullied my near-18 years of loyal and exemplary service to my country.
“The medals I have enclosed would only serve to remind me of the shocking way I have been treated.”
Sgt Nolan is one of at least 80 soldiers, sailors and aircrew made redundant when they are less than a year away from qualifying.
