Clay Hunt is dead. This would just be another personal tragedy were it not for a few details. One, this man was a U.S. Marine. Two, he was a poster child for helping suicidal veterans cope with their grief. Three, he took his own life.
For these reasons, Hunt becomes the face of a national tragedy. More veterans take their own lives than are killed by enemy combatants. That means that the number-one killers of American soldiers are… American soldiers.
The war we’re fighting isn’t against an external enemy. It’s against ourselves. And we’re losing. Something is horribly wrong.
