As described in the New York Times At War blog, Clay Hunt, a marine who had served in Iraq and Afghanistan, took his life March 31 of this year in Sugarland, Texas.
I'm inclined to think Clay Hunt was killed overseas even though he died by his own hand.
My son's a soldier and a healer and has served in the hot zone, and I am often reminded when chatting with him that all we see of most people is what's on the surface, seldom what's stirring in the depths.
Father Martin, having been a chaplain and a world war 2 veteran may have known a lot about this story, even though he's been gone thirty years and more.
Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord; and let Light Perpetual shine upon them.
