I just had a dear brother-in-arms take his own life last night. He is the 13th one this year for me. Is there anything that anyone does to help with dealing with loss? I can't listen se anymore friends/brothers, especially this year.......

Hey brother, Check out Project 22. You can watch the trailer at medicinalmissions.com It's a documentary made by us and it's saving lives on a daily basis. We realized we have to be the ones to help ourselves, Uncle Sam doesn't have a clue and has been consistently fucking up veteran reintegration since the revolutionary war. This film is how we change that. When we have been affected by suicide and have lost brothers to it, we can either find a spark of purpose to stop it or follow them.

We're all going through this together. I've been there. Over and over. Trust me, this helps.

Look me up on Facebook, I'll get you involved somehow.

As of late when the night gets cold,
I try my best to remain bold.
Every day since we lost you
We have all prayed that it isn't true.

With every breath we wish we could bring you back,
Ha, We all know you would have another joke to crack. :')
With every breath we wish you were here,
I don't want to shed another tear.

We didn't just lose a friend, We lost a brother.
We will be daughters and sons to your weeping mother.
We will watch over her with all of our strength
No matter how hard, nor how long the length.

We are so mad we want to scream
Praying to God that this is all a dream.
We all wonder what we could have done,
Just to see you rise with the morning sun.

We all wish that you were just asleep
The pain this is causing is cutting us deep.
We will never forget you, our dearest friend,
I wish I could have been there with you in the end.
To try to make you change your mind,
If only you would have given us a sign.

This poem I write for you,
Know that every word is true.
You will always be our brother even though you are gone.
Our memories with you will play on and on.

Cpl Micah Wing - So very sorry for the loss of your friend. Talking to people about it and not keeping your feelings bottled up inside of you is a good thing. Know that people genuinely care about you and how you feel, whether it be close friends and family or your extended family here on RallyPoint. We are all here for you, buddy....
