Randy Pete

For many years--from the early weeks of our invasion of Iraq until about 2009--I wrote often about the suicides of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, or back home when they returned.  For a long time I was among the very few reporting these tragic stories and clamoring for more support of damaged souls.  (My book So Wrong for So Long includes some of these stories.) Today a mother who lost a son in this way sent me a note after she read one of my old reports.  Seems like I should post the link where she writes about her "Randy Pete" here.  Of course, the suicides go on, even as the U.S. toll in battle declines.
