We’re designing our ‘state of the nation’ survey – it’s a lengthy process trying to decide what questions and subjects will make it into our AFF Grab.
This year, our thirtieth anniversary, we need to determine what you feel about the big issues facing Army families and Service personnel. The temptation to produce a survey that will deliver ‘Sun’ style headlines is overwhelming given the barrage of financial constraints and redundancy facing the Army.
One of my favourite questions is ‘would you recommend a career in the Armed Forces to a twenty year old’. And I wonder if, given the erosion of the package you signed up to, you would?
We have a pretty good idea what evidence we need to continue campaigning for a fair deal for Army families but if you have any suggestions let us know – firstname.lastname@example.org
