This sailor asked for help with his struggles. The Navy didn’t give it to him

Recommended Posts

In the suicide note that Kenny Santiago posted to social media before killing himself on the National Mall last week, he said he felt alone.

In death, he was not.

The rate of suicide is increasing among active-duty ranks, as the military community faces a pandemic along with the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

But it’s not the horrors of combat that I heard about after writing Santiago’s story.
