Unhappy Another Loss.

Just got the word this morning that one of my Infantry Brothers commit suicide over the Christmas break. Mac was a good instructor and a knowledgeable NCO. Its a shame that he lost his battle with the demons that inhabit us all. I would humbly ask that you pray for his family and for his brothers still fighting the good fight. This makes 3 personal losses to suicide that I have experienced over this past month.

If you have suicidal Ideation, PLEASE, call someone and let them know. It takes courage to speak up. It is not weakness. I pray that if you have issues right now that God lead you in the direction of help.

Matt

Sorry for your loss.

Anyone who know a military vet who may be suffering, Houston has a place for them to get help. Its called Camp Hope, and its veterans who run it, not just citizens. Out of the thousands of Vets who have gone through Camp Hope, only 1 has lost his battle after.

It hurts every time I hear about this happening. I hurt over the brave men and women who end their life. Then I get angry over those who put them in harms way, and wonder if it's even worth it. Prayers sent for the family.
