Brothers created in combat are ironclad, a friendship that will span the test of time through many ups and downs because nothing can break a relationship forged in combat. The stresses, fear, excitement, and grief you share as a family in combat is something impossible to recreate anywhere else and will span the tests of time. You lean on your brothers during the bad, lifting them up when they are down, and celebrate the good times. No one should ever have to feel that they are all alone with no one there to listen or help. Veteran suicide is a tragedy and needs to stop. We as veterans need to reach out and check on each other the same way we would in combat.
My book, Tip of the Spear is starting to catch some steam and the word is spreading. I’m excited to see where things go from here.
Made it 42 years on this great planet. Last year I wrote a book, deployed to Afghanistan, and lived a healthy life. Can’t wait to see what 42 brings!
