we were kind of learning things
that you wouldn't necessarily hear in Civvy Street
with the media and kind of all the fake news sort of thing
that goes around, so you kind of had your ear
a little bit more to the ground,
which was more reassuring for me.
And then I could reassure my family and friends
from there as well
and then with having gone on lockdown
and being at home, like I say,
there was just a lot of kind of false media going on
and scaremongering and it wasn't good.
You could see people getting upset for no reason
and didn't need to be there, so yeah, I definitely found
being in the military was better personally than not.
