Keith Brown has announced that in a 'radical innovation' a Veterans Commissioner is to be appointed to fight the corner of Scotland's 408,000 ex-servicemen and women. The role will be the first of its kind in the UK and is designed to help former Armed Forces personnel to adjust to civilian life as Mr Brown admits it's "quite clear that the current transition process is failing some of our veterans."
