Probally them as well. Yes only the "freedom fighters" whose greatest achievements in most case was planting an odd bomb or two in a Wimpy can be considered military veterans, us conscripts are not catered for. There was a big expose on Carte Blanche about. If you are a military vet you are one regardless what the outcome was.

A friend of mine works at NIA and he was telling me that they have to check on all the old SAP/SADF guys that had any special traing ie Koevoet,Recces,32,Bats and SAP STF and Reaction Units.They are checking where they are and what they doing.
Wonder if they know where all the MK and Apla members are?The ANC told them to pull off robberies to raise cash for the fight,could that be why robberies are still so high?

I, for one, am glad that I don't have to go and register. I have absolutely no inclination to be on any military/veteran database this government might have.

it is not about you or I but about the guys that need state assistance.There are a lot of guys who have never recovered emotionally and have never been able to get on with their lives because of what they experienced.They the ones that are being denied assistance while anyone who "claims to be a freedom fighter" is now being given hand outs. Just scrap it, but no they won't as it is another cow to milk :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Damn right!

My year of service taught me how to sit around and wait, and also introduced me to beer. :blush:

You are not allowed to, this is only hand outs to the brave freedom fighters who were no where to be seen at the time but now there are seemingly thousands looking for financial gain.

If you did national service you do not qualify - you were part of the baddies.

So do not register.

As my wife says, they probaly do not want any ex SADF conscripts because they are still angry at how the SADF used to stuff them up in action.

Then someone needs to organise an association of ex SADF conscriptees to lobby for support and make the issues known. What choice did the teenage white male have, but to conform to the brutal system that robbed so many of their youth.
