JOHN MCGOWAN 3RAR VETERAN:  INTO THE MIND

Army life in 1968 looked ‘so darned exciting’ to outdoorsy type 17year old John.   A tour of duty in Vietnam was to colour that outlook, but it didn’t come to full recognition until much later when the Vietnam experience had already impacted severely on John’s life, and he’d developed techniques to hide it.  His wife told him to write about it…   As Leaves Are Prey To Wind.

 

PETER JESSER:   MENTAL HEALTH & THE PIB     

The Papuan Infantry Battalion of WW2 saw many atrocities committed by the Japanese invaders.  How did they deal with it?  What happened after the war?   Peter says that a golden opportunity was missed by PNG after the war to involve PIB Veterans in the leadership of their country. Why?
