An army veteran, injured in action, with an amputated leg, surgery and repeated infections, Sam has had the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance withdrawn. He says, “DLA really helped me. I can’t stand up for long and I can’t walk far. I get a lot of back problems and it has totally changed my life. But it is more than the money. I was in the army fighting for my country and now 
I feel like I am being pushed aside.”
