FearLess PTSD Australia and New Zealand invites you to a
FearLess Dinner – In Conversation with John Schumann
Natasha Exelby, FearLess Ambassador, Journalist and TV Presenter, will MC the evening and introduce our guest speaker John Schumann, singer/songwriter of ‘I was only 19’.
All proceeds will go to FearLess Outreach, a charity that works with people living with the consequences of post traumatic stress.
Very few people have changed a nation – and the impact of John Schumann’s hit song ‘I was only 19’ places him among the few. ’19’ had an immediate and emotional impact on Australians when it was released in 1983, making us all aware of the struggle of our returning soldiers. It unified Australia’s Vietnam veterans and spoke to all of Australia of the pain and hurt of having served your country, returning with both physical and psychological injuries but not having your service honoured.
Schumann will tell the background story of this ground-breaking song which brought our Vietnam veterans home finally, and put PTSD front and centre in the national conversation.
