Well done to everyone who has been shortlisted as finalists. The Awards team had double the amount of  applications compared to last year and the shortlisting process was extremely difficult. The team would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who put forward nominations.

The Veterans Awards went on to comment: “we want to Inspire our future service leavers that great things can happen. Its you who will act as role models and in some cases mentors, remember positivity breeds positivity.
