Rip Brother - Very Sad

Question

Ex-Marine, veterans' advocate kills himself

His suicide has shaken many Iraq and Afghanistan veterans; 'he led an exemplary life,' says his father

WASHINGTON — Handsome and friendly, Clay Hunt so epitomized a vibrant Iraq veteran that he was chosen for a public service announcement that told veterans that they aren't alone.

The 28-year-old former Marine corporal earned a Purple Heart after taking a sniper's bullet in his left wrist. He returned to combat in Afghanistan. Upon his return home, he lobbied for veterans on Capitol Hill, road-biked with wounded veterans and performed humanitarian work in Haiti and Chile.

Then, on March 31, Hunt bolted himself in his Houston apartment and shot himself.

We are so very sorry to hear of this hero's death. May his family find peace and serenity in their memories and may God walk closer to them in this dark hour.
