  1. I love your description of his injury. I lost my own brother, also an Army veteran in April 2014 due to a PTSD related death. I always said he had a moral trauma as opposed to a physical one. He was also in his mid-40’s. I wonder if they served together? He later worked out of Selfidge AB. My brother never admitted to or received treatment until later in his life. Unfortunately there wasn’t much out there for him. Such a loss of good men… my heartfelt condolences!
