Ministere de la Defense et des Anciens Combattants - France

Categories: Social Welfare

The equivalent of the UK Ministry of Defence has a special section, named in the Ministry’s title, to deal with Veterans & War Victims – indeed there is a National Office – set up for this very purpose, similar to the MoD’s own Veteran’s Advisory & Pensions Committees, but seemingly offering wider range of services for Veterans, Widow(er)s & Orphans all under one roof, so to speak.
