Military Veterans: Valuing Their Lifelong Sacrifice

On June 6th 2022, a group of armed forces veterans gathered at Tugu Negara to call for the current military pension system to be reviewed. Why have some 300-thousand of these veterans now come under the B40 income group, after spending the best part of their lives defending Malaysia? We find out why from Retired Royal Malaysian Air Force officer Major Mior Rosli Mior Jaafar, the President of Pertubuhan Suara Patriotik Rakyat Malaysia, who also led the gathering.
