I have had thoughts of committing suicide in the past, but they are more present and persistent now than ever before. I have known Soldiers who took their lives after returning from war. I don’t want to do it, I don’t want to bring pain to others, but I don’t want to live with the way I’m feeling. It is May 24, 2021, graduation day for PCVI. There is so much I would like to share with you about this course… this, it seems, is life: Small choices with big implications. I made a small choice to enroll in PCVI and it has had an enormous effect on me. Thank you.
