Care after Combat Chairman, Commander Stephen Anderson RN has been awarded an OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).
Stephen left a 10 year career in the construction industry to join the Royal Navy in 1998 for a life-long desire to fly helicopters.
Gaining his wings in 2000 he has seen service on the front line flying from Frigates and Destroyers to support operations in Afghanistan, into Iraq in 2003, Counter-Drug operations in the Caribbean, and Counter-Terrorism operations in the Mediterranean and Middle East.
Selling his soul to the “dark-side”, he left the cockpit in 2006, and as a “core” Warfare Officer has patrolled the Falkland Islands, supported Counter-Terrorism activity in the Far East, was second in Command of HMS DAUNTLESS for her maiden deployment, and has most recently Commanded the Type 23 Frigate, HMS SUTHERLAND.
Commander Stephen Anderson was recognised for his public service in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2018.
The trustees and everyone at Care after Combat would like to congratulate our Chairman on this fantastic achievement.
