24 March 2011 - 612 ABC Brisbane - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and our soldiers - the story from all angles
Dotted across Queensland, and Australia, this morning are young men and women, some in mental health wards of hospitals, others in jobs struggling to get by, others sitting at home trying to put their life back together. They might be aggressive, wanting to hurt their own children, or cold, not wanting any relationship with the wives who love them, and not knowing why they are just so different to the fit, young men who not so long ago went off to serve their country on our behalf. Some are still in the army, some have just got out, others for years have been boxing at shadows.
