    My name is John J Pharis Jr. I was a infantry squad leader with 1st Battalion 6th Marines and deployed to Iraq 2004 through 2005. I came home a very very changed pweson. The war rages on in my head to this very day. The things I did and the things I saw whole in Iraq will NEVER leave me. I’m diagnosed with PTSD. I’m on 6 different medications. Everything to help me sleep to not be depressed. They don’t work. My heart goes out to Sargent Wicks and his family. I will keep you in my daily prayers. I did not know Sgt. Wicks I happened to see his grave marker at the Veterans Cemetary. I had to stop to pay my respects….. Rest Easy Marine…… You are not forgotten…. Semper Fi
