Former Cpl. Romeo Perrault of the Royal 22E Regiment, Unit 1. His PTSD symptoms have been ignored for 48 years and his family is fighting to get him help from VAC. He and his unit lived through a traumatic experience in June 18, 1962, when the Canadian Army was called in to help squelch a riot in the St. Vincent de Paul Penitentiary. Then 1100 rioting prisoners set six buildings on fire. He would like other ex-military from his unit, who shared this experience, to step forward and help right the injustice of their suffering.
