Mr Weeks, a teacher from Wagga Wagga, arrived back on home soil on Thursday night after being transferred from a United States military base in Germany.
One mission in April nearly cost Weeks his life as his captors took him into an underground tunnel in the early hours of the morning, telling him Daesh (Islamic State) had arrived, when in fact it was the Navy Seals "right outside our door".
US forces later confirmed that they had attempted to rescue men at a hideout belonging to a terrorist group in Afghanistan in September 2016 but the prisoners had been moved by the time they arrived.
He recalled one such mission in April, when his guards told him they were under attack by militants of the rival Islamic State (IS) group.
"Out of a big dust cloud came six special forces and they walked towards us and one of them stepped towards me and he just put his arm around me and he held me and he said, 'Are you OK?' And then he walked me back to the Black Hawk".
"I believe they were right outside our door", he told a press conference. And the moment we entered the tunnels, we were only one or two meters underground.
"And our guards went up and there was a lot of machine-gun fire". Weeks talked about he was once knocked unconscious when he fell over backward into the tunnel.
In detailing a hellish life that passed by moving between windowless cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Weeks said that "after nearly 1,200 days, our bad experience ended as abruptly as it had begun".

"I've never, never, never lost hope, and I think in this kind of situation, if you lose all hope, there will be very little left for you", said Weeks, accompanied by his sisters Alyssa and Jo Carter. "I knew I would leave eventually", he said. It just took a little longer than expected.
Mr King remained in hospital, Mr Weeks said.
Mr Weeks said he did not hate the Taliban, saying some of his guards were "lovely people" he hugged as he left.
"Firstly, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who worked on the long and complex process that led to our final release", he said.
Thanking those involved in his release, including Australia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison and US President Donald Trump, Weeks said he has been changed completely by the experience.
He mentioned he had accepted that his guards had been troopers performing below orders and that they "do not get a selection".
'I pray that they will be successful, and that they may enable the return of stability and security to the country of Afghanistan, and the region'. "And some of them, I have a great respect for and a great love for nearly".
"Some of them were so compassionate and such lovely, lovely people".
'For me they were soldiers and soldiers obey the commands of their commanders.
