Military Depression


#1

Hey guys, sorry for the heavy post. One of my Corporals just lost their fight with depression. I know there are a lot of veterans here and if any of y’all are ever struggling, say something. An impulsive action in a moment of despair is not the answer. I will always be here when the fight gets heated. Talk to your brothers and sisters.

Tough thing to see a buddy go through that and them think there’s no other option. When I got out the military was really starting to push back against PTSD and try and have better outreach, but there is a long way to go. Sorry for your loss man.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and support! Hopefully we will see this fight, on our own soil, won in our life time.

I’m really sorry to hear that man. People forget there are so many people who care about them. People don’t always remember what a heavy burden service is. That’s why it’s important to not only thank then, but talk to anyone you know who has went through it.

I try to keep an eye out for stuff like this. I know a Specialist who seems to be struggling a bit himself, this post has motivated me to talk to him.
