Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.

A new book provides a gripping account of post-traumatic stress disorder. In the book Among the Walking Wounded: Soldiers, Survival, and PTSD, author John Conrad talks about what PTSD is, about the challenges that soldiers and veterans face on the field and at home, and just how we as Canadians should consider the sacrifices of those who head into battle. The book is being lauded for its necessary message and just why it’s important that we talk about what we do for whom we ask so much. Colonel John Conrad served thirty-four years in the Canadian Army. He is a colonel in the Army Reserve, and he has authored a number of books and articles on Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan, including What the Thunder Said, and Scarce Heard Amid The Guns, both bestsellers. This new book is published Dundurn. The Twitter handle is @johndconrad2. He lives near Cooking Lake, Alberta where he joins me from today. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, John Conrad; Colonel Conrad, good morning.
