Video sheds light on PTSD
CA LT-GEN Ken Gillespie will launch
the post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) video "Dents in the Soul" at
Lavarack Barracks, Townsville, on
Designed to raise awareness of the
disorder -- known as shell shock, shell
concussion, battle fatigue and war neuro-
sis in the past -- "Dents in the Soul" has
been produced to help educate people
who have no knowledge of PTSD.
Producers expect the DVD to raise
robust discussion on how the illness
develops, how it can be treated and, most
importantly, the benefits of early help.
John Schumann of Red Gum lent his
iconic song "I Was Only 19" to the men-
tal-health awareness initiative.
Lt-Gen Gillespie said PTSD did not
mean the end of a soldier's career and the
important thing was to look after mates,
recognise the signs and seek help early.

THE new home for the ADF's joint
combined training capability, the Joint
Combined Training Centre (JCTC),
was officially opened by CDF ACM
Angus Houston on November 23.
The Canberra-based centre will har-
ness state-of-the-art technology and sim-
ulation to heighten realism in training
Director JCTC Lt-Col John Duff said
the centre's role was to enhance ADF
force preparedness and bilateral high-
"It supports mission rehearsal exer-
cises (MREs) and major joint and com-
bined exercises by integrating live, vir-
tual and constructive technologies, to
simulate combat realism at the tactical
level and stimulate command and control
systems at the operational level," Lt-Col
JCTC has supported all Operation
Slipper MREs in the past 18 months and
major exercises from Talisman Saber to
During the opening, an impressive
real-time, virtual air-to-surface attack
simulation exercise was conducted dis-
playing JCTC's capabilities.
Controllers in Australia and the US
brought virtual versions of high-end mil-
itary hardware such as F/A-18 Hornets
to a simulated HMAS Anzac together
on a virtual map that were integrated by
data links facilitated by JCTC.
The mission took place without hav-
ing to travel thousands of real-time kilo-
metres to complete the mission.
Lt-Col Duff said the backbone for the
seamless integration of modelling and
simulation was enabled by the connec-
tion of two networks.
"They provide the platform for
Australian and US training interoper-
ability; the JCTC Defence Training and
Experimentation Network and the U.S.
Joint Training and Experimentation
Network ," he said.
ACM Houston said JCTC was the
way ahead for training.
"The use of simulation in the kinds
of activities we've just seen [in the JTAC
scenario] will become the normal way of
doing business in training and exercis-
ing," ACM Houston said.
He said not only would it be a more
efficient way of conducting training and
exercising but a great way of achieving
a much higher level of interoperability
through the technology available.
