Scot and his beautiful girls



Hello.   My name is Tracy and my husband Scott (E4) was in the Tennessee 278th Army National Guard.   He served in Iraq for 15 months and received numerous awards and medals for his service.  He was home on inactive status for nearly 1 1/2 years and then received word a week before his death that his unit was on alert to go back to Iraq.  I am sad to say that nearly a week after he was informed of this information he committed suicide on 05/16/08.   He had PTSD and was in counseling early on but had stopped counseling and medication due to his reports of it being ineffective.  Now, I am left with three girls to raise alone and the financial debt that he left behind.  Please, take your soldier's PTSD and/or depression SERIOUSLY!!!  Please, help them receive the counseling they need!!!! 
Please, be patient and take the time to talk to them about how they feel!!!
And most importantly talk to them about SUICIDE . . .
