Pioneer Female Fighter Pilot Takes on PTSD

I noted this story in a back issue of the CF newspaper, The Maple Leaf, about Major Deanna (Dee) Brasseur, Canada's first female fighter pilot, who has recovered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and now champions the cause through her advocacy of the One In A Million Project.

I was unaware of this project until I read this article - their website features an excellent description of PTSD, some links to Canadian military charities whom the coin project supports, and a chance to do some good by purchasing this spiffy coin for $50 that will go to helping soldiers and their families.
