Hat tip to Leah Farrell (via Twitter) for this pointer - to a vivid, hard to read personal account of PTSD by an Australian soldier, who joined as a private and became a general. From the sub-title:
Major General John Cantwell fought in Iraq in 1991 and again in 2006. In 2010 he commanded the Australian troops in Afghanistan. Upon his return, he was in the running to be the Chief of Army – instead, he found himself in a psychiatric ward.

We've seen similar references and I do wonder what the impact upon each national society will be of ex-veterans who think this:
I seethe at the indifference of most Australians to the efforts of our troops overseas.
I know there are some biker SWC members, so:
Bizarrely, I can ride a motorcycle without having these foolish panic attacks. I have no idea why.
I understand that I am on a long journey of recovery, but I know also that I will complete that journey, someday. I am determined to get better. I will beat this thing.
A book is due out next month:
Exit Wounds: One Australian's War on Terror by Major General John Cantwell (with Greg Bearup), published by MUP on October 1.
