This is one of the saddest stories in a long time. Two vets killed trying to help a third veteran who is mentally deranged. Three families now suffering unbelievable loss and sorrow. No answers to this.

When I first heard about this I thought hell no this can't be right, sad to say it was. I read his book
and it was one that was hard to put down. If this points a finger at PTSD and finally gets the treatment
this kids,( I'm 73 so my 23 year old Firefighter grandson seems like a kid) deserve and rightly have
coming too them. The Suicide rate for our Military is embarrassing and disgusting and is out of line.
Leadership from the top on down has to pick up the slack and take care of what we entrust to them.
