William’s Dad is in the Royal Navy and was deployed last August in 2019. When he returned, the Covid-19 lockdown was in force, which meant that William could not be reunited with his Dad in person. They have kept in touch via short video calls where possible, but it has now been a year since they have been together.
William’s Mum told us “He’s been my little trooper. Getting on with his life and home school work and coping his best but he has found it very hard”.
Louise Fetigan, Founder of Little Troopers, adds: “Everyone here at Little Troopers is very proud of William for being so brave through such an extended deployment and time apart from his Dad. We think William is incredibly deserving of our Little Trooper of the Month award for August and we are delighted to be sharing how special he is.”
William will receive a Little Troopers medal, certificate and special prize as part of his award. Well Done William, You’re a real Little Trooper!”
