What the fuck? Saturday, the 18th of March, 2006, a Sergeant I knew blew his head off right in front of his wife. A Marine that recently gained another child. A Marine who just re-enlisted. A Marine that was selected for Staff. I knew him, worked with and for him for a few years, before he went to the schoolhouse to teach. He happened to hail from the same state as I. I cannot for the life of me figure this one out. What drives someone to this? And the bigger question, why does it happen so fucking often in the Marine Corps? May he rest in whatever peace he can find, but he'll get no pity from me. I do, however, give my deepest sympathies to his wife and children, for whom life will never be right. What a fucking cop-out.
