To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Notes the recent D-Day Commemorations, the upcoming UK Armed Forces Day, and the centenary of the beginning of the First World War;
2. Values the contributions of Welsh servicemen and women and recognises the difficulties they may have upon returning to civilian life;
3. Calls upon the Welsh Government to establish a Veterans’ Card Scheme for Wales to enable:
a) an expansion of the existing concessionary fares scheme to include veterans
b) free entry for veterans to local authority swimming pools
c) free entry for veterans to Cadw sites
d) priority treatment for service related conditions/injuries on the NHS
e) priority delivery of Disabled Facilities Grants for veterans requiring home adaptations.
4. Further calls upon the Welsh Government to explore the potential to erect a Welsh memorial at the National Arboretum in Staffordshire, to remember and honour all the brave men and women from Wales who fought and lost their lives in service of the nation.
