That this House congratulates the four British and two US wounded veterans from the charity Walking with the Wounded on completing their 72 days, 1,000 mile Walk of Britain, raising awareness of their outstanding resilience and showing how they face their future with the same courage and determination which they demonstrated on the front line; applauds the work of the charity in getting injured ex-servicemen and women back into employment; recognises the substantial cost that this removes from the welfare state; and calls on the Government to support the charity's efforts to find employment for as many veterans as possible.
