Human remains found under car believed to be veteran who suffered from PTSD

The parts of a man found underneath a vehicle at a gas station in Khao Saming, Trat in the east of Thailand last week are believed to be the remains of a former soldier. 

 

Samret, 54, is believed to have been involved in an accident in neighboring Chanthaburi province in the dark early morning hours.

 

He was then picked up on the underside of a vehicle and taken to Trat.

 

Phuangpetch, 61, the elder sister told Channel 3 as reported by Sanook that she believed it was her brother who had deep-seated problems after combat related to post traumatic stress. 

 

Whenever he heard gunfire he would have a paranoid attack. He once jumped out of a bus when he heard gunfire on the bus's television. 

 

He was taking medication for his condition.

 

At 9pm the previous night he went to bed but in the morning the family heard there had been an accident. 

 

They only found a few bits of her brother. 

 

The authorities were informed about an accident at 4.10 am in Klung but initial investigations in the dark failed to turn up a body.

 

DNA tests are being carried out but it is believed the former soldier was carried across provincial lines by the other vehicle after an accident in the dark.

I worked a few years ago with a Canadian man who lost his leg in Afghanistan - listening to him (and others) Canada treats its vets just as bad or worse..

We are not in Canada. Focus.

When were the Thai military last in incidents which could induce combat related PTSD?

And it is the PTSD which is related to combat, not vice versa as quoted.

2010,  Sukhumvit road

2010,  Sukhumvit road. And before anybody gets uppity about that comment it is a fact as PTSD is a known result in a few cases of receiving orders to open fire on unarmed personnel, not just in this 2010 incident, but others around the world also. So please nobody question that the deceased in this horrible incident could not have been suffering as claimed. The question or not as to whether a Thai could run over a body without noticing, and then go on to party at Koh Chang is not for this thread perhaps.

Vietnam, a base called BearCat. Yes they were there to, used to fly in there for fuel and lunch. Several VN Thai vets still alive.

I've seen a few attempt it in broad daylight.

They were also very much involved in Laos as well. And we should not forget the internal conflict against communist insurgents in the Issan region.

By the time the car came along, the body had been broken beyond recognition. It was dark and the driver thought he had run over a dead dog and would seem that the police were satisfied with that explanation. 

 

So how about winding in the ''only a Thai'' rhetoric a bit. It's a mistake anyone could make.

sometimes..... If you don't use your brain to think before you post.

Thai military has a lot to learn about their treatment of their ranks and it seem to think having an Aircraft Carrier (which doesn't even have a single aircraft to assist it) and buying Submarines are more valuable than taking care of their disabled/afflicted members......

OK, so where is the evidence that they do not take care of  their veterans?
