My uncles, grandfathers, father and other family members fought for our country. Some came home and others did not. They are our heros that should get more recognition for their achievements. One hundred years this year since world war one. The silent people too are those who were left behind. Yes those people who had to hold the fort. Many came back not whole. Suffering post traumatic stress disorder lives with them for the rest of their lives. Reliving, dreaming from triggers that set off the condition. Lest we never forget is a common saying. Those suffering with ptsd do never forget. More people are coming out with more stories impacting on the younger generation to continue with honouring this era. Its alive in our hearts. Whos got family members who served or currently in the forces? My son spent 13 years in the navy. Hes my hero too.
