I am a British Armed Forces Veteran, I was medically discharged with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in 1984 following service in the Falkland Islands during the South Atlantic Conflict of 1982. I continue to have issues with PTSD in 2022.

My son David came back from Afghanistan with PTSD. He managed to find timely help, but quite a few of his friends didn’t and took the same route your David did, Julie-Ann. A National Commission will not have the wide ranging powers of investigation and recommendation a Royal Commission will. That’s why we need a Royal Commission. We need to question why our sons and daughters are being sent to fight other people’s wars in the first place.

I am so disappointed in the Prime Minister, and his cronies, trying to undermine the Royal Commission before it even starts. My Morrison has gone out of his way to deny Veterans and their Families a Royal Commission into Veterans Suicide. The Prime Minister is happy to put our Defence Personnel in ‘Harm’s Way’, but not prepared to look after them on their return. The attitude displayed is petty, disrespectful, negligent and the behaviour you would expect from a truculent school boy. All ‘go’ and no ‘show from Public Servant Number 1. Please stop trying to hamstring the Royal Commission, let it function correctly and honestly without any political interference from our Parliament.

Thanks for adding your voice.

A Royal Commission is the only honerable, moral and long overdue investigation into the injustices meted out to our serving and ex-service personnel and must be addressed and seen to be addressed

I don't want another veteran to go through what I did without help and support like I did. I'm just lucky my partner rescued me in time.

How terrible that a government that puts the military front and centre of so many things treats those who have fallen so shoddily.

I’m signing this petition because these people risked their lives for our country and when they needed help the government turned their backs on them. Have we not learned anything from the experience of our Vietnam Veterans?
