Retired peacekeeping vets marching for PTSD awareness
Journal Pioneer
Just before boarding a plane to what was Yugoslavia, Jason McKenzie was stopped by a CBC reporter for an interview. He used all the words a soldier heading to a war zone usually says: Pride. Determination. Resolve. After his tour, as he and his comrades landed in Regina, SK, McKenzie was approached again by that same journalist. But he couldn't do it — he just couldn't talk about what he'd seen. "I wasn't aware of it at the time, but there was definitely a change, where I wasn't the same person coming home," said McKenzie.
