Got word that one of my Marine Corps brothers had passed this week via a post to his FB page. He left behind his wife and two young kids. As details came out, it was revealed that it was a suicide. I’m torn.

I am crushed that I lost a brother. And I’m pissed that he went out in this way. The seesaw is in full effect, with my thoughts going one way and then another.

I have found that I can not properly vent what I am feeling. And in that way I can identify with his not coming to one of us for help. And I was was chatting on FB with another brother about it, I question, even if he had reached out, would we actually have listened? I found myself chatting while checking on other browser tabs… and I was ashamed.

Rest Easy, Brother. Your smartassery will be sorely missed.

    Thanks, but no thanks necessary. It is me who thanks you and your brothers. You are the ones who give us our freedoms – none of which I take for granted…ever. Take care.

    Just saw this today. All I can offer you is a moment of virtual tactile human contact, but you know that.
