Owing to the requirement for high levels of fitness, both physical and mental, members of the forces can often have their careers curtailed, through medical downgrading and/or premature medical discharge, following injury.
A firearm or ballistic injury can be a devastating experience because members of the forces are often unable afterwards to enjoy comparable careers, not only in terms of remuneration and benefits but also the camaraderie and the rewarding and exhilarating nature of serving in the Armed Forces.
