Mick Bainbridge is a former commando who was left battling a crippling case of PTSD after five overseas deployments. When Mick sought support from his command to move to a training role he says was told to go back to Afghanistan or leave the Army altogether. Enrolling in a law degree, Mick decided that instead of getting mad he would get even, employing his newfound knowledge to take on the system. Now as the youngest councillor ever at the NSW RSL he's using his legal skills to help other veterans take up the fight. Introduced by artist Ben Quilty.
