Tony Green served as a medic in the Vietnam War. He said he had sometimes struggled with PTSD after working in intensive care and having to operate on wounded soldiers. He was faced with blood, gore and death. Mr Green said he could still picture a young man who lost his life. He said he believed that young man, who he never got to ask his name, became his guardian angel, helping him to survive the remainder of the war. Although Vietnam was tough — in the most unlikely of places Mr Green found love, meeting a woman from Vietnam who was working for the Royal Australian Navy. Mr Green had to leave for Australia but returned six months later to be reunited with his partner. The pair moved to Australia and started a family. He said it meant a lot to him when people came together to pay their respects for Remembrance Day.
