'There is hope': Afghan vet releases song about battling PTSD
November 1, 2018
A Canadian veteran who served in Afghanistan has released a country song about his struggle to deal with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Graham Trude co-wrote "Seen What I’ve Seen" and hopes to raise awareness of PTSD by donating proceeds from the song to support Wounded Warriors Canada, which runs mental health programs nationally.
Now a police officer in Orangeville, Ont., Trude served with the Canadian Armed Forces for four years with tours of duty in Europe and Afghanistan.
Despite retiring from the military seven years ago, he admits he still has tough days.
“I know other people who have these issues too and I wanted to make them aware that they are not alone and there is hope,” Trude told CTV Barrie.
“It’s not something you can just brush off when you get home. It’s something that really affects not only you but your family as well.”
