Terrible, Thanks For Asking
Death by suicide has long been a problem within the U.S. military, and not just among veterans: In 2020, suicide rates among active duty service members hit a six-year high.
On August 28th, 2015, Heather’s husband Tyler became one of those statistics.
Theirs is a story of friendship, of love, of family, of service and duty … and of trauma, domestic abuse and mental illness.
If you’re experiencing thoughts of suicide, you can call or text 988. If you’re a victim of domestic violence and want out, you can call the National Domestic Violence hotline. You’re not alone.
