Hi folks,

Hurricanes, earthquakes, mad men with nuclear weapons. Anyone else feel like we’re living in a disaster movie right now?

And who is out there in the Caribbean, helping with the search and rescue mission? Our boys and girls, of course. Cuts and poor treatment but the world still can’t cope without us. A huge well done to everyone on the ground – we hope you’re staying safe while you get on with doing what you do best – just getting on with the job. 

Here at home, our troops are also under threat of being used as bargaining chips during the Brexit process. Share your views on our Facebook page, as ever we love to hear from you. 

Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

You could be eligible for a university degree in management

A university degree in management can lead you into a worthwhile second career. Your rank could make you eligible for an online MBA at a prestigious UK university. Even if you have a specialist skill, a university degree in management is particularly relevant as your next career path should take you into management.

www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place with LSM (distance learning associate college of Anglia Ruskin University). There is no charge for this work, as it is paid by LSM, so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.

The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.

One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: Facelift

A woman has a heart attack. During this, she dies and meets God.

"Will I die?" she asked.

"No," God replied, "You will live for another 40 years, 2 months, and 8 days."

At this instant, she snapped back alive. After the heart attack, she decides to make the most of her life. She gets a face lift, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. She even gets a surgery to change the color of her hair.

After her final surgery, she walks out and gets hit by a car and dies. When she goes up in heaven and meets God, she's steaming.

"What was that!?" she asked.

"What?" God responded, "You died."

"You said I would live another 40 years!"

"Oh." God thought for a while.

"I didn't recognize you."
