I have been the army family route myself (as a serving member in Australia)and have seen some sad (though not as disturbing) parallels.
I also have a friend whose father was in the UK army who told me a thing or two about how this effected her.
Congratulations to Teresa Churcher on her role. I wonder if she had some insights of her own?
I look forward to seeing her in further roles.
