Dave Sturmer is a local man who just stood out to me as someone we should all know. He went to Vietnam at the tender age of 20 and experienced horrors, lost friends and came back to Australia a changed man. Slowly but surely he has chosen to look at what happened and do something about how he was feeling and the way he was expressing that, he didn't want to hide in the 'grog' and behave the way he was.
This is an interview that I hope will inspire but be prepared, there are some experience he talks about that may be hard to hear.
