Must Read

After the Killing of Afghan children and men, who were unarmed, the Australian Defense Force (IGDAF) have had to sort through the aftermath of the potential war crimes. One obstacle that they might have to face, warns New South Wales Justice Paul Brereton, is mental health. A secretive probe was conducted and is predicted to directly impact the mental health of many soldiers who were involved according to a letter written by Justice Brereton to the RSL national president Major General Greg Melick and SAS Association President Lieutenant Colonel Peter Fitzpatrick. Justice Brereton’s inquiry team has provided the soldiers who might be impacted by recent findings and investigations, psychological help before the final report comes out. Many of those predicted to be affected by the investigation have been offered help by a group of reservists from Special Air Service Regiment, 1st Commando Regiment or 2nd Commando Regiment. The results of the secretive findings are expected in months.
