Message: Ek is 'n 25-jarige Sielkunde student wat my meestersgraad wil doen oor post-traumatiese stres by weermag soldate. Ek kry bitter min inligting oor die grensoorlog op die internet en sal baie graag met 'n paar manne wil kontak wat voel dat daar te min gedoen is na die oorlog om hulle geestesgesondheid te herstel. Ek wil graag 'n behandelingsplan opstel wat die weermag kan gebruik om die skade te herstel. Daars soveel tyd spandeer om die ouens te leer veg, maar nie om hulle "reg" te kry na oorlog nie.Hierdie is 'n wonderlike website en ek kry trane in my oe as ek hoor van die ouens wat op daardie stadium soveel verantwoordelikheid moes dra en die "groot koppe" wat in die parlement gesit en praat het en te bang was om self 'n geweer vas te hou

Message: CPL 77345635BG - Wow, it's been almost 30yrs. Did my 2yrs. '79-'80. Basics at 11th. Command Kimberly. Any of you remember "killer Smit", need I say more? Later went on to JL,s and then to PTI school. Would really like to hear from anyone who remembers me. It was quite an experience, one that taught me a lot of lessons. Hats' off to you guys for creating this site. Hopefully now all those South Africans who were in denial about us being at war will read about what our heroes on the GRENS were really doing to make our lives safer and the country a better place. God bless our fallen comrades and may they rest in peace! Dr. Gordon Kernes. (USA)

Message: Did 18 months of my two years in Walvis Baai what a hole but we did what we had to do. Served 9 Years in citizen Force with 37 Field workshop which were part of 44 Para. Saw things that still do my mind although my last call up was in 89 I still remember. What really cheesed me of was when I was getting my immigration papers sorted to go to Australia "they" had no record of my service so 11 years was for nothing but I still remember and know better. I will never forget mates I have lost for a war that should not have been fought but hey, a man has to do what a man has to do. Thanks for remembering.
