    A few years ago my wife and I watched a Canadian produced documentary about our involvement in Yugoslavia during the UNPROFOR days. As I recall, it was very good and really dig into the PTSD and what life was like for the soldiers serving there. I can't remember the name of the documentary or who produced it (Passionate Eye, W5, etc?). Is there anyone out there that remembers seeing it or better yet, what it was called?

    Cheers,
    John

    Was it the one that M.Gen. Lewis Mackenzie did - A Soldier's Peace? If you find a copy of this please let me know, I have wanted one for years.

    I remember Gen. MacKenzie being in it along with a brunch of other vets. they talked about the way the government changed medical records to hide the fact that we were being shot at and blown up, engaged in fighting and generally harassed by all three sides. I wish i could remember the name or even who produced it. When I find it, I will tell everyone here.
    Cheers,

    There is another one called "Ghosts of the Medak Pocket" but I don't recall it talking much about PTSD.

    No it doesn't. I watched it on You Tube this morning. We'll keep looking. Maybe someone who was interviewed for it will reply, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    Cheers.
