Ruth Clare's father came back from the Vietnam War a changed man: a violent, controlling parent and a dominating, aggressive husband. Through a childhood of being constantly on guard, with no one to protect her but herself, Ruth learned to be strong and fierce in the face of fear. After escaping her difficult upbringing, Ruth went on to have a family of her own. Facing the challenges of parenting brought her past back to life, and she lived in fear that she was doomed to repeat her father's behaviour.

I am a daughter of a VV and your story rang true for myself and my whole family. The Defence Force needs to take some steps to help partners and children of Defence personnel to understand the whys and hows. I wish you well for your future. Kimberly
