Only soldiers can talk to soldiers and understand. Thanks, there are a lot of hurt men out there who need help.

- Veteran soldier

Thanks for the excellent booklet on PTSD. Very useful, well done.

- Gulf War and Afghanistan veteran

My congratulations on the Survival Guide. I think it is quite outstanding, and for my welfare and clinical staff a really helpful insight into many of the things that they encounter as they go about their work. I will commend this work to anyone who shows more than a passing concern in the issues that you raise.

- Commodore Toby Elliott, Chief Executive Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society (Combat Stress)

thank you Jimmy we are delighted to accept this book and add it to our library.

- Imperial War Museum

I have read the Guide from cover to cover, it’s so accurate and has had a profound effect, and it’s somewhat comforting.

- Gulf War veteran

Thanks. For once there is light at the end of the tunnel, yours is an outstanding and worthy cause, well done

- Northern Ireland veteran

Thank you for your Guide. I found it very accurate. I was adamant that I had escaped the conflicts unharmed but after reading your Guide I now know I was far from the truth. Again, thank you.

- Northern Ireland and Falklands veteran

When I read the Guide I started to cry, I could relate to it so much it was unreal. If I had been given this Guide on leaving the Army it would have helped me a lot and also helped my family spot the change in me.
