Military Archives: A Marines Diary P.5.

2008, January 29, Tuesday.

Suicide is what my father tried to commit the day of the shooting with the officers in his very own home. When he fired his AR15 at the Cops he expected them to fire back and kill him. He wanted them to kill him; assisted suicide. They fired back, but they didnโ€™t kill him.

He was so drugged, and drunk, out of his mind that day he doesnโ€™t remember much of it. I received a letter from him today, and the tone sounded worried. Make sure you write back soon.


My father has been in prison 10 years already. (Note to Reader- It was the year 1998). If he tried killing himself back then whatโ€™s stopping him from committing suicide in prison?

Am I the reason he is still alive? Does he want to see me grow into a successful individual before he passes? If so, then I canโ€™t die in combat during my Iraq deployment. For if I did, I would not only take my life away, but my fathers as well. what do I need to do in order to survive and grow even stronger


MISSION STATEMENT I am always looking for my next creative project be it a new song, a new video, a review, a technical achievement, or sharing tips on resilience. I believe in building character and love to share the knowledge i've built through my experience to those who wish to listen. In the end it's not about me, but what you can achieve through me. WHO I AM I am a man who enjoys a cup of coffee โ˜•๏ธ with cream/milk and sugar every morning. I served in the Marine Corps for four years and did one combat tour during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)ย ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ. I'm a nerd/geek and proud of it. I play video games, create content on YouTube, write a journal, and am working on a music album. My favorite color is purple which makes sense, because I am free spirit who enjoys helping others . This is an outlet to record my thoughts, share my experiences, and collaborateย ๐Ÿค. Please feel free to browse around, comment, click on links, or just say hi.
