No. The whole point was that I specifically did not attribute familial or stranger violence by military and ex-military personnel to PTSD (or mTBI). What I said was that it was multifactorial and that it was influenced by many things including: premorbid, and premilitary factors including personality, military experiences, including role and combat experiences, personality factors and post military factors (employment, housing, relationship factors) etc. Prof Simon Wessely said that it was "a sensitive, well judged piece". I would like a published correction of your summany please. Thank you. Professor Jamie Hacker Hughes
