An army veteran, injured in action, leading to an amputated leg, surgery and repeated infections, Sam has had the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance withdrawn.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.”
