''Sometimes you just can't get away from the things you have seen.''

Lance Corporal Johnson Beharry is a Grenadan-born soldier in the British Army who won the fabled Victoria Cross, the Commonwealth's highest decoration for valour in combat, in Iraq in 2004. He recently told the British media of how, in December 2008, he attempted to kill himself by driving his sports car into a street light. The UK's The Sun ran a piece today describing some of the therapies used to treat soldiers such as Beharry (1 in 20 in the British Army) who suffer from PTSD.
