Disturbing Reality

I found out recently, that a Marine that I had served with towards the end of my enlistment, committed suicide a couple of weeks ago. This is that other side of the spectrum that I was talking about a couple of months ago on the blog. Veterans unable to cope with life after the war.
I then read about statistic, that every DAY, 18 veterans commit suicide. And that 79 more, try. The truly ugly side of war.

  1. Man, having come from a military family those numbers are tragic and, as you said, disturbing in every way, glad it ain't you and sympathies for the bloke you knew.
