Newsletter – 16 January 2020
January 16, 2020 Newsletter
Welcome to your first Ex-Mil newsletter of this decade. It seems like ages since we last wrote to you and so much has happened in that time – rumblings of conflict in Iran, Trump facing impeachment, Australia burning, Brexit confirmed for the end of this month. We'd take up all your time if we tried to cover it all.
We hope you had a really enjoyable Christmas and New Year and that you are easing into 2020 in style. As always at this time of year, we'd like to remind you that it's a great time for a fresh start, so why not give your CV and details a little TLC by logging into your profile on the Ex-Mil site and making sure everything is up to date?
One story that particularly caught our eye over the last few weeks is a story about priests sharing the confessions of gay servicemen and women. As we've recently marked the 20th anniversary of the lift of the ban on homosexuals serving in the forces, this story seems particularly timely. Gay and lesbian ex-military staff have spoken out about being betrayed by priests following confession and discharged from service. We dug a little deeper and discovered that, not only had these clergymen cost people their career, they also committed a crime against the rules of the church, the punishment for which is… dismissal. How ironic. Let us know what you think of these stories over on our Facebook page (keep it rated PG, please!).
Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

We Like to be social
After 30 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling.
When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable – an entire laundry list of unmet needs she had endured.
Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and after asking the wife to stand, he embraced and kissed her long and passionately as her husband watched – with a raised eyebrow.
The woman shut up and quietly sat down in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, "This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this?"
"Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays I fish."
