Nicola Calcagnini, born 19 August 1953, is an enigma. He is a practicing Psychologist who blames his bizarre emotional behaviour on his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that was caused by his fifteen years of Special Forces operational service.

Here is Calcagnini "dressed up" on a commemorative day, to remember his good mate Josh.

Calcagnini fervently claims to have served for fifteen years, as a Commissioned Officer in the Australian Special Air Service Regiment (SASR). In fact, he has never served in the Australian Defence Force.  On ANZAC day 2020 Calcagnini, shed copious, PTSD induced tears of anguish relating to his "Afghanistan service"   

He has posted various photographs of "himself", and "his fellow combatants" in action: See below:

Here is what he has said about his devastatingly emotional Defence Service.

"He served in the Australian Army for 15 years, then after he was discharged (at the rank of Major) he continued to serve in the NATO Reserve forces.

He completed Officer training at Royal Military College Duntroon (RMC) and went straight to SASR training, where he completed six months of training. Due to his outstanding marksmanship skills he was selected to be an SASR Sniper.

Once he completed SASR training he was deployed immediately to the middle east.

He was on the top of a building watching a target, when he was attacked by two men. There was a long battle involving many punches to the head. He reached back and grabbed his knife, which was kept between his shoulder blades for easy access. He drove the knife into the enemy’s throat and described the sound the blade made, as it severed the spine, as he watched the life leave the man’s eyes.

He and his Australian SASR brother, Josh, were captured and tortured by the Taliban. They were put into the back of a vehicle and there was a severed head of a soldier sitting on a chair. The eyes of the dead soldier were open and he had the bluest eyes.

He explained how hardened the Taliban soldiers were and they stripped him and Josh, and put something under his foreskin that transmitted an electric shock.

The Americans accidentally stumbled across them and rescued them

While traveling through Basra, he and his SASR mates were ambushed and hit by a Rocket propelled grenade (RPG).

He believes that the RPG was meant for him, but because Josh was leaning across to grab his cigarettes Josh took the hit. Calcagnini sustained injuries to his abdomen, arm, his jaw was broken , and his head was partially scalped, due to the helmet rotating on his head. Josh died in his arms.

He can’t stand the smell of cooking bacon, because it reminds him of the smell of burning flesh, and he always preferred cold showers as hot showers reminded him, of the feeling of warm blood running over his body. To this day he still has shrapnel lodged in his spine that is unable to be removed..

He killed 260 targets in his role as an Australian SASR Sniper.

He suffers chronic PTSD, and horrific nightmares almost every night.. He said he often dreams of Josh being killed, and being in the desert.

On returning to Australia, they were unloading coffins at the airport, containing fallen soldiers when they were met by protestors.

He now does Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) work as a Psychologist/Psychiatrist.

Each year on the anniversary of Josh’s death he goes to the bush to undergo a ceremony in Josh's honour."

In addition.

He said, "the picture below, is of him and three of his SASR brothers. Josh (who was killed in an ambush). Frank (committed suicide earlier this year), and Kevin, (who does black ops missions in the middle east)"

Calcagini claims this to be him in action jumping through a hole in a wall, with his "mate" Josh who was killed soon after at Bas'ra.

In the extract below he makes heartrending, PTSD invoking, comments that are so false they would only be uttered by a Psychologist who needs the services of a Psychiatrist.

Calcagnini6

All of the "action" photographs above, have been stolen from other websites and used by Calcagnini to "prove" his Australian Army Service. None of his claims are true, which makes him a dishonest person who has created a false persona as a hardened SASR Commissioned Officer.

Veterans in need, in Central Queensland, beware of this practicing Psychologist.

Some years back, we exposed another practicing Psychologist, his name is Newlyn. See here: anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/valour-thieves/127-newlyn
