Jonathan Bartlett lost his legs while fighting as a US army soldier in
Iraq. He recovered remarkably well and strove to graduate with a
business management degree and then got a job.
Two months ago,
however, he shot himself while in the shower, leaving a message to his
friends and family saying that he wanted to be forgotten.
Bartlett is not counted as a casualty of war as he no longer wore the
uniform, he joined the same fate as 154 active-duty US troops who
committed suicide in the first 155 days of the year alone.
Patty Culhane reports from Washington.
