  1. Well done Ms Jeppesen! Your input is not before time and if only this idea that you are now putting into practice had been done years ago at the commencement of the involvement of our army in Afghanistan it would have saved a lot of soldier stress and psychological trauma both for the Australians and for the Afghan fighters as well.
    Keep up the good work.
