Unvalidated Pain is about one person's life changing experience with suicide. But, as the statistics will attest, there are so many more. And, as the introduction to the book notes, one label used is non-combat related death. These are links to two "non-combat related deaths." Each are very different stories - one was immediately called a suicide, and the other was most certainly not a suicide. However, while they were very public announcements of deaths in theater, neither have been followed up with any answers as to what happened and/or why. The media brings us into the story, but never gives us an ending... or the military does not allow an ending. (Seal Team 4 Commander; CPT Bruce Clark)
