Rex Fisher’s piece in the Byron Shire Echo last week about Anzac Day and what it means was wonderful and moving.
I have also launched a song, video, website and campaign about my father, a hero of WWII. It’s no war glorification but a personal reflection on the trauma of war experiences and their effects.
As Rex mentions Four Corners recently aired a program on the unspoken suffering that can affect families for generations, something that my personal experience of my dad speaks to.
Soldier On, an organisation that helps veterans with PTSD, is worthy of support in the leadup to Anzac Day, visit www.oldsoldier.org.au
