All of My Friends are Dying

The casualties of war are “countless” …. meaning there are too many. Even one … is too much!!

All of My Friends are Dying.

All of My Friends are Dying

A veteran commits suicide every 65 minutes in the USA, with over 30% of veterans having considered suicide.

All of My Friends are Dying

November 07, 2014 “ICH” – “Telesur“-Today, for the second time in less than a month, a veteran in my circle of activist-friends has committed suicide. His name was Ethan. Last month, my friend Jacob, another anti-war veteran, took his life in rural Arkansas. Earlier this year, I lost two members of the platoon I served in; they died of cancer; neither of them smoked or drank. In fact, both Stephen and Sinbad were some of the most straitlaced veterans in our platoon. In the previous three years, two other anti-war veterans died prematurely—Anthony from a drug overdose and Joshua of cancer. As the years roll along, I’m beginning to better understand Plato’s statement on war…

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. I am a veteran and I also suffer from PTSD and other issues. My biggest beef is not getting any response from VA here in Atlanta on anything just the run around and no return calls from any of the staff! I never had this problem until I movbed here! So sad!


    • I feel you .. annkelley!! I worked for the VA for 28 years as a physician. I know how the system works and I know how broken it is.

      I started my career in Puerto Rico, where I come from, and moved to Florida. I saw the system first hand. I had to fight for my patients. It wasn’t pretty … uphill all the way.

      My suggestion to you: never give up on demanding for your medical care. It is NOT a handout. You earned it. I told my patients .. you were in a war? You were in the armed forced? Your personal war has started now.

      Ann, never give up. If there’s anything questions you have that I could help you with, now you know were to find me. hugs …

      Veterans have always been very special for me!! Peace …. ❤
