David Cameron: My husband deserves more than this

My husband, Michael, has been a soldier since he was sixteen. We are proud to be part of the army and accept the highs and lows. Michael even missed the birth of our second child because he was serving in Iraq. But despite putting duty before family so many times, my husband is losing his pension.
My husband has been made redundant just three days before qualifying for his military pension. We had planned to use the pension for a mortgage when we left army accommodation and to support our young family while Michael established a new career. Now our family’s financial security has been snatched away from us.
David Cameron made a promise called the Military Covenant to look after those that had risked their lives for our country. That is why I’ve started a petition on Change.org calling on David Cameron to honour his promise and let my husband receive his pension.
The military pension is the key financial promise on which service personnel are recruited, retained and promoted. It exists to assist service personnel transition with dignity to civilian life and is a promise around which army families plan their financial futures.
I understand redundancies sometimes need to be made but soldiers who are a few months or, in Michael’s case, days from achieving their pension should not suffer such huge losses.
Please sign my petition to ask the Prime Minister to show the same loyalty and commitment to my family that we have shown to the army over the years.
