On Wednesday 23 June Evodia will celebrate Reserves Day in recognition of the valuable contribution Reservists make to our Armed Forces, including our very own Jason Jones.
After completing 22 years colour service in The British Army, Jason continues to be a part The Army Regular Reserve. This comprises ex-regular other ranks and officers who retain a liability to be called up for military service after they leave service. In January 2021, Jason volunteered with RE:ACT A humanitarian charity who repurpose the hard-earned skills and experience of military veterans. Jason spent several weeks supporting the mass vaccination centre at Ashton Gate in Bristol.
The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are integral to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas, particularly providing capability in specialist areas such as medical and cyber.
