Several young men in their late twenties suffering from PTSD committed suicide prior to parades on the 11th of November 2000. Their's is an untold chapter in a forgotten war - within the mind.

Jim (Jock) Love
Stonehenge, England

They'd got another one last night.
He's given up the ghost,
He'd given up the fight
They found him early this morn.
The gaunt and haunted look upon his face
The rope lay wound around the small and twisted form.
No bullet holes or shrapnel wounds,
No blood, no snot, no gore,
Just another casualty
Of a long forgotten war.
