Supporting Soldiers, Families & Civilians – Active, Guard, Reserve and Retired

3 September 2008

23

John is a thirty year old Specialist in the National Guard. He has just returned from his first deployment in Afghanistan. During this deployment, he received an article 15 for insubordination. John just discovered that his girlfriend has been unfaithful and no longer wants to see him. He was very embarrassed by the article 15, and now he is feeling quite sad about losing his girlfriend.

He is talking to a fellow Soldier.

What the fellow Soldier does not know:

1.

John is feeling sad and taking medication to help him sleep.

2.

Until the article 15, John wanted to make the Army his career.

3.

John has been diagnosed with depression in the past.

4.

He is feeling like he did three years ago, when he tried to kill himself.

5.

He is considering killing himself by overdosing on sleeping pills.

Sometime during the conversation John says, “I can’t take it any more.”
