Here told Jacob Panton about the time in January 2012, where he was shot five times, died and returned to life as a changed man. And one must say, that his life has taken a turn of the sharp and terribly hard, since the time when he lived as kampvognsfører on the front lines in Afghanistan.

Now he lives with pain every single day, and he must navigate a world that is far from the well-known in the Defense.

- today I have put large parts of my time lobbying for other veterans. This is why I tell my story: to put focus on the lack of help for veterans and their families, says Jacob Panton to Ekstra Bladet.


however, It has not been the clean gingerbread man is for Jacob to tell the story of how he was shot, was dead, and now live with pain and rehabilitation daily.

Jacob was dead in three minutes

Jacob Panton had been shot in the shoulder, just three weeks before the last trip in January 2012.

Special rekonstruktionerne - that is, scenes where the actors among other things, the skudopgøret in Afghanistan - has been hard to see for the veteran.

- wow, it was hard. I do not have ptsd, but I could almost not keep it out. It was terrible, and it felt as if I could not get the air. But I have to believe that my story can do the benefit of other veterans and give attention to our association of veterans, says Jacob Panton.

In the whole, the documentary claimed the lives of a lot of energy in the whole family.

Work with the association for the veterans, Veteranskytter, has got Jacob Panton to realize that it is difficult to fight against bureaucracy.

I have been fighting against systems which treat me as if I'm a criminal. I have been waiting for several years on the devices, and it is simply devastating, because my legs grow is not healthy to go out again.

- I have been so burned and angry that the politicians do not know how it is to live with in reality. So now I have created the here sustainable association, which is independent, says Jacob Panton.

in Addition, he has got the eyes up for the policy, and in 2017 he was elected to the city council in Stevns Municipality, on the Left. He also makes up for the forthcoming general election in the same circuit.

- Is it not, then, pretty good timing that the documentary will now be displayed - up to a general election?

- Yes, it is fortunate for me that it will be sent now. But it was not intended, for it should only take a half a year to record the documentary. Instead, it has taken two years, because many things have taken longer than we had anticipated.

- Actually I would not take my past as a soldier with me into politics. I don't know if it is something positive that I have this background. One thing is the fact that the film affects me, but it may also be that there is someone who does not like it, says Jacob Panton.

the Documentary was broadcasted in tv on Thursday night, but it has been on TV2 Play since Saturday.

- And I have already received between 300 and 400 emails. Luckily, they have been sweet, and I am hugely touched by all the attention. I hope the story does something good for the veterans. For it is not easy for me to tell, says Jacob Panton.

'The dead soldier' can still be seen on the TV2 Play.
