As part of Veterans’ Health Week, the VMCC organised speakers to address a common health issue faced by men. I refer to prostate cancer, an illness faced by 1 in 6 men to 70 years old.  About 30 attended, with two women and a few serving members among the group.  Following some very relevant and personal experiences, I spoke to the group about the Trojan’s Trek Foundation and our achievements.  One of the men attending, Desert, fondly recalled attending the very first pilot program run by Dogs in about 1997 under the auspices of Operation Flinders.  For me, it was of interest that, even after 23 years he recalled the value he gained from attending.  He even suggested he was due for a re-charge!
