Australian Story - The Blue Beret (Matina Jewell)
Part One of this episode focuses on a young Australian Army Major, marked out for great things in the military. Matina Jewell accelerated through the ranks and served with distinction on challenging overseas operations. But it wasn't until she served as a UN peacekeeper during the 2006 Lebanon conflict that she experienced the horrors of war first hand, with catastrophic consequences. Caught up in the middle of the war, Matina Jewell was seriously injured during a dangerous transit through the middle of the conflict to reach the UN's coastal headquarters in the Lebanese coastal port town of Tyre. Part Two explores the ongoing battle she faced at home in Australia once it became clear her days as a career soldier were over.
