The Scuttlebutt | Season 7 Episode 9
Peggy Simpson – Author of Mental Camouflage
Peggy Simpson is not a veteran. She doesn’t come from a military family. She admits that she’s not even an author. However, Peggy befriended James, a former Corporal in the Ulster Defense Regiment in Ireland. James is a veteran of the Troubles, a Northern Ireland conflict between Protestants and Catholics that occurred between 1968 and 1998. Through Peggy, James wishes to get his story of recovery out. From an early age he experienced a series of traumatic events which has led to him developing Complex PTSD. But James hasn’t let that destroy his life. Listen to The Scuttlebutt this week to hear James’ inspirational message.
