Default Salute for a Soldier

I ask that tonight we all smoke to the memory of a fallen soldier tonight.

A fellow in my town who i knew was a soldier for 2 tours fighting hellish battles in Iraq and Afghanistan not because he agreed with the war but because he knew that when leaders march us into battle somebody needs to follow them in.

He returned with severe PTSD and depression and unfortunately although he could survive the firefights he could not fight the enemy that is the trauma he suffered.

this afternoon he took his life and as he was a close friend to me i ask we smoke to his memory and remember all the soldiers who have fallen in protection of our rights, and never forget the hell that is war.

goodbye soldier.

In all seriousness, that is one of the saddest things I have heard in a long time. I am so sorry for your friend and I am sorry for his family and you. Post traumatic stress disorder is so hard to deal with for people. Your friend is a hero in the purest form of the word. I do appreciate what our troops have and are doing. My thoughts are with you.

Condolences to all. PTSD will be something this country will need to help an awful lot of people with over the coming years. The tolls of battle are many.

Your friend and all others who sacrificed must be honored and remembered.
