LET­TER OF THE WEEK

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - CONTENTS -

Re­gard­ing the cover story Home Front (6/11/10). Is it fair and rea­son­able that the mil­i­tary can take these young men and women, break them and then pass the prob­lem on to a stretched and poorly re­sourced com­mu­nity to fix? In SA we will see the im­pact of this is­sue when the 7 RAR Bat­tle Group of some 1200 sol­diers ar­rive at Ed­in­burgh over the next 12 or so months. Are we do­ing enough for our troops? No. We must be more in­no­va­tive, proac­tive and ex­plore all av­enues in­clud­ing those out­side the con­ven­tional meth­ods of one-on-one coun­selling and phar­ma­col­ogy. Moose Dun­lop, OAM
