Description:
Gwen Cherne talks with 7NEWS' Bryan Seymour about her husband Peter, a former Commando who tragically took his own life in 2017. Peter had served tours in Cambodia, East Timor, Afghanistan and Iraq. He suffered PTSD upon returning home. The Commando Welfare Trust helps the families of Commandos, but they are struggling to raise money to provide services. They've received a huge boost from Australian Chinese billionaire Dr Chau Chak Wing, a fellow of the War Memorial, who is donating his recent $280,000 defamation payment to five veterans' charities - starting with the Commandos.
