“As Chair of the Judging Panel this was the most difficult year to date, due to a doubling in the number of nominations and the high calibre of all the nominees. Each and every one of these Finalists is deserving of their recognition and we look forward to celebrating their journey with them when the winners are announced in April”.

In 2018 three new business categories were added, to acknowledge the exceptional entrepreneurship of veterans and their families. Following the outstanding success of a partnership with X-Forces Enterprise (XFE), the Awards have now become a fully integrated brand of XFE, further extending the scope of the Awards to embrace the entire Armed Forces Community.

Ren Kapur, Founder and CEO X-Forces Enterprise says: “There is an ethos and set of values by which the military community live and work; leave no-one behind and work together as a team. Those values are exemplified in the amazing achievements of this year’s Soldiering On Awards Finalists who are all outstanding ambassadors for the Armed Forces Community and winners in their own right.

“The 2019 Awards have seen a record number of high quality nominations being received from across the Armed Forces Community and beyond. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those people who selflessly took time out to put someone forward for recognition; demonstrating the support and collaboration that exists throughout the community”.
