Geoff Evans has post-traumatic stress (PTS) and physical wounds from being blown into the air when his Bushmaster-armoured vehicle ran over a road mine in Afghanistan. His brain suffered a severe traumatic injury from his head being violently shaken. It led him to be medically discharged - the day after he was promoted to lieutenant.
When he returned from the second tour and was medically discharged from the army, RSL DefenceCare stepped in to help him with adapting to civilian life and getting his pension entitlements from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
