#2 Came home and saw what he and his fallen comrades were defending. Don't think that was somewhere in his mind?

#3 /\ Sadly, quite possibly true.

#4 I worked around SFOD Groups from 1988 to 1993. I have watched the team members laugh and joke about running fire fights they had. But I have also watched the same SF members breakdown shaken to their very core, crying as teams when one of their own dies.

My sincerest condolences.

#5  Or maybe he came home to the pentagon like my neighbor did and realized a whole lot of what he believed was true was horseshit and that flipped him out.

That place is like ancient Rome and the ambition and lies are similar. Our soldiers are being used to kill Sunni jihadis on one hand and feed them in Syria on the other so those creeps can murder Shia and Christians in Syria.

#6 Prayers for Master Sgt. Andrew Christian Marckesano and conolescenses to his family. Tough to deal with when a loved one dies--especially hard when it's suicide.
