Soldiers Off The Street (S.O.T.S)

Luckily not many homeless veterans refuse help when offered sadly one Ex Royal Tank Darren who sat at the top of the Waverley Steps in Edinburgh sadly died on the 17th of December 2017 after refusing help from Soldiers off the Street, SSAFA and others tried helping him but we think the streets was his only way of living and copping with life!
A lot of members informed us about this veteran on Waverley Steps and even Rose Gentle met him when our Scottish outreach team was out!

Now he can rest in peace and fly with the angels.

It's so very sad to hear about anyone being homeless.

Have to disagree with you on that jock, its the leaving the protected bubble of camaraderie and the military life that effects people most whicn in turn causes depression and then the spiral downwards begins and unless you have someone close to you to stop the spiral sadly you become caught in the hopelesness of it all and some end up homeless.

But sad story....RIP brother se you in Valhalla.
Soldiers willingly, sometimes foolishly, risk their own lives to keep their comrades out of enemy hands.
