can we get free tickets for doctors/nurses, or teachers, or the police?

this fetishisation of the armed forces is ridiculous, and a smokescreen for the fact that they are treated so poorly by the government.

Explain fetishisation of the armed forces? Yes they are treated poorly by the government. Unlike the services mentioned, they are not allowed to strike on their pay freezes. However do fill the gaps when they do strike. Any small help wins for me.

verb
1.
(transitive) to be excessively or irrationally devoted to (an object, activity, etc)

The police can't strike.

I'd fully support them in their right to strike, and don't believe they should be drafted in to scab for firemen in last century's equipment.

Pretty sure it’s just for Armed forces as they’re the ones who deploy and don’t spend every night at home with their families.

It’s intended to make the limited time they do spend at home with their loved ones all the more enjoyable.

Not taking anything away from the other services but you can see the reasoning for it only being military.

The armed forces never whine on about having it harder than everyone else even when they are sent to places that people are genuinely trying to kill them. The pay for the armed forces is also considerable less than their more dramatic civil servant colleagues and they are more prone to homelessness and mental ill health than any other profession. Give them a break, they more than deserve a couple of free tickets.

that's the job.

how much do you think an officer earns: for your civil service comparison.

They are more prone to those issues, as I previously alluded to, and they are treated badly; as are all of us that access the NHS, and other services.

why not focus on improving everyone's lot, that playing the game of the deserving & the undeserving?
Maybe give the money to Abd Ali Hameed Ali Al-Waheed instead. Surely I can't get in trouble with the moderators again for that one?

We took over the fire strikes
we also filled millions of sandbags and helped flooded cities many many times - all for no extra pay

so any little thing helps make time at home better for the ones who serve now. Wish they'd had this when I was in the Army! all we got was 25% off burger king

For the same reason The Police Treatment Centre does not focus on the Armed Forces, and The Arts Council does not focus on child abuse.
Registered charities tend to focus on a specific group of people, or issue. Without focus, the benefits to the group - in your example; 'everyone' - will be negligible.

If the Fire Service were to strike - and with your approval the Police striked in response to forced Fire Service duties - what available group would you instruct to control the raging fires, the riots and the unprecedented crime wave?

Since they could not refuse, if you were to assign the Armed Forces to handle the crisis, might it cause you to reassess the charity as one that was operating in earnest, rather than as a propaganda tool that seeks to persuade us to enlist on the basis that, in addition to a working wage, we might receive complimentary concert tickets?

Funny that.

Leave room for doubt as to whether your beliefs withstand scrutiny. There are more persuasive ways to dodge questions.
