A British soldier set to come home from Afghanistan for the last time has told the Citizen he will be proud to have left the country a more peaceful place.
Frank Apeadu, who comes to the end of his second six month tour at the end of April, also encouraged youngsters to join the British Army to better themselves.
He said: “As the British Armed Forces are due to be pulling out of Aghanistan soon, I can proudly say we have achieved our aim of making it a safe and peaceful place to be and will be leaving a good legacy. I am pleased to be part of the British Army out here representing Milton Keynes and the country.
“This six months has been very hectic and at the same time enjoyable. I would recommend the British Army to our youth in Milton Keynes. They should take up the challenge to join. This could help keep some of our youth off the streets.
“I feel like I’m representing the community and doing something for the country, and others could benefit from this too.”
Mr Apeadu added: “Finally, my greetings go to Nii Tackie Adama Latse II, the King of the Ga state, prophet Alexander Twum and all members of World Vision, prophet Felice Garr, uncle John and Dinah, Grace Danso, Rita Djisah, Alex Otoo, David, Chris Opare (old sodja) and all old students of Wesley Grammar School, especially the ‘98 year group.”
