Two New Contractor PTSD Suicides this week
Posted by defensebaseactcomp on May 19, 2011
It is with sorrow that knows no bounds this evening
that we must announce that
the contractor community has lost two more lives
only five days apart
They were both former DynCorp employees covered by CNA under the Defense Base Act
Two families, which both include children, left with the horror and guilt that suicide leaves in it’s wake
Out of respect for these grieving families we are withholding details until a more suitable time
Please keep these families in your hearts and prayers
May our departed friends find the peace they were deprived of here
To those of you suffering from PTSD, to those friends of these contractors suffering from PTSD, please do not wait for for your employer or the insurance company to fulfill their obligations.
Both of these deaths could easily have been prevented by proper screening and prompt treatment.
