Maine War Veteran Takes Life
Tyler Curtis, a Maine veteran who served two tours of duty in Iraq with the Army, took his life on Thanksgiving morning. His death is being attributed to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSS). See "Casualty of war?", Sun Journal, December 2, 2007 and "PTSD blamed in former soldier's suicide", Army Times, December 2, 2007. Veterans of any war are twice as likely to commit suicide than members of the general public.
