Back by popular demand, Ted Barris returns to the RCAF 413 (A/C Leonard Birchall) Wing at Trenton, Ont., on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2011. Following his talk about instructors in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, during the Second World War, Ted has been invited back to look at another of his topical works. In 2009, his book “Breaking the Silence: Veterans’ Untold Stories from the Great War to Afghanistan” was published. It quickly became a bestseller. But more important, the book began to generate a lot of buzz about the nature of getting veterans to talk about their experiences and equally fascinating, Ted’s exploration of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and its indelible impact on veterans then and now. That’s the subject of his return-visit talk.
