Amazing People – Matt Walker: Experiences of an Army Veteran

By Ally BarnesThursday 27 Feb 2020Amazing People with Sam and Duncan

Listen: Sam and Duncan chat with Veteran Matt Walker

Military service is not for the faint-hearted. Leaving behind family and loved ones, the comfort and familiarity of home, and placing yourself in life threatening situations for your country, is one of the toughest jobs there is.

For this week’s Amazing People we chat to Matt Walker, an ex-special forces Green Beret from the UK. Matt has adjusted back into civilian life and works as a personal trainer and Jujitsu coach. He shared what it’s like serving in the military, the disconnect a service-person feels once they leave, and the best ways you can support a returning serviceman.
