Hey People, I'm Leroy and I'm a soldier in the British Army. I've been informed about my discharge next year and I could really use some help.
I've served just over 10 years in the Army and next year I'll be leaving the service and becoming a civilian. This also means leaving military housing, the only lifestyle I've known in my adult life and that thought terrifies me. I'm currently trying to clear debts the best I can, and and get enough together to hopefully get a deposit so myself, the wife and my 3 young daughters will have a level of housing security.
Everybody struggles at times but I'm really concerned about the future. I am the breadwinner and I don't want to fail my family, I'm not too proud to ask for help and even £1 here and £1 there would be greatly appreciated.
As I say, Upon my release I'm aiming to be debt free and stable, I'm trying my best to attain this before my discharge but I can't clear everything in the time I've remaining.
Many thanks for reading this and thank you for your support, I'll keep you guys updated upon my progress and transition.
