Hi, I’m Ryan March. I served as an officer in the Infantry for 10 years.  Commissioning into the Cheshire Regiment, I served all over the world including tours of Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.
My travels took me to Africa, different parts Europe and the Caribbean on exercise and Short Term Training Assignments.
I was lucky enough to train Infantry recruits and also enjoyed an attachment to the Royal Welsh.
In short, I have had the privilege of leading some of the best people imaginable, whose bravery, selfless commitment and loyalty towards one another is beyond question. I witnessed acts of generosity to others, bravery, comradeship and resilience where men young and old overcame the most difficult of days.
[color=#333333]Unfortunately - people that have served, like in all walks of life, sometimes need help.[/color]
This is where SAAFA steps up - 'We want our Armed Forces, veterans and their families to know they can depend on SSAFA for support now and for the rest of their lives.'

I have promised to give something back since leaving to spend more time with my daughter - so here I go, please help with whatever you can spare...
Thank you for visiting.
