And here is another shocking news story from the same military news site that started this thread:
CAMP LEJEUNE, NC – Members of the Camp Lejeune Base Public Affairs were saddened by last week’s tragic suicide of Sergeant Jay Dorsey, a Public Affairs Marine, but proud that his last note highlighted the many features that can be found at the new base exchange.
“While I can no longer endure the pain and sorrow that is my life, at least I can be assured that the men and women aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune will continue to enjoy top quality service and bargain prices at the Exchange,” Sergeant Dorsey wrote just before hanging himself.
“In fact, I bought this rope there at 5% off the normal sales price. What a deal!”
Staff Sergeant Edward Lindsay, Dorsey’s supervisor, showed selected parts of the note to Duffel Blog reporters.
“It’s as if the walls of my spacious, comfortable barracks room are closing in,” began Dorsey’s note, which was several pages long and included multiple high-quality pictures taken by Combat Camera.
