Rate this:
For many returned service men and women, coming home is when the battle really begins. Haunted by their experiences at the frontline of conflict, 20 special Australians share deeply personal and often hidden stories of the ultimate struggle - to return to physical and mental health and be able to take their place in civilian life. Among them is Kerry Baker, a mother whose two sons lost that battle and committed suicide following their military service and Janny Poate, whose son was killed by one of the Afghanistan troops he was mentoring. For John Bale, a retired army captain who served in Afghanistan where his friend Lieutenant Michael Fussell was killed in an explosion, the aftermath of war service led to him co-founding Soldier On, an organisation that supports those who have served to assist with their physical and mental health. These are the stories of those who've seen it all, and fought to find a way to live with the aftermath of their experiences - Royalties earned from the sale of Gimme Shelter are being shared with Soldier On.
