  2. Kacey,
    My heart goes out to you. I’m so proud that you are still proud of your Soldier and that you shared your story. You just never know and you never know who’s life may be changed by reading and learning more. I hope peace fills the rest of your day and you and your children can carry on..strong in heart and filled with good memories.
    Sending hugs across the miles…

  3. i totally know how you feel my husband also committed suicide july 2011 we have two sons they were 3 and 7 at time. I am here if you need to talk. god bless you and your family.

  4. My husabnd died of suicide due to PTSD. My children were 9, 15 and 19. You are correct, you learn to live each day with what happened. Allow yourself the time to change and grieve. This will change you, but allow it to. It is impossible not to or you too will live a life controlled by PTSD. The pain will not always be as intense. The sharp edges will soften. But you will never forget, and that is what we want…is to never forget and make sure they are remembered for the wonderful people they were.

  5. Dear Kacey, Our condolences on your lost, and our best hopes for you and your son as you continue on life’s journey.

    We would be glad to post photos from anyone of the widows who have posted on this thread. Just message them to us on our Facebook page: http://facebook.com/highgroundmovie

  6. He is a hero!! <3 Just because he didn't die in battle it doesn't mean he didn't do the ultimate sacrifice, in different and challenging ways. My heart goes out to you.

  7. I was very upset to here about chad. I am sorry for your loss. I knew chad when he worked at Diamond. We would share experiences we had while we were deployed although we were in seperate combat zones at nearly the same time. We share the last name but if related it is distant. I would wonder in and get some technical advise and he was always willing to help. He built my rifle for me specific to my needs and through the process we both learned to smile a little bit again. He and I share more than last names. PTSD and TBI are debilitating. The meds keep you in a fog and the depression is worse than any of it. I can’t image what it’s been like for you and yours but my family can relate to some of the things you have had to deal with. If you need anything you can IM me on Facebook. Keeping you and yours in my prayers.
