Charlie Foxtrot: We want you (Part 5 of 5)

There is hope. The time for action is now. (Charlie Foxtrot Episode 5 of 5)

U.S. Army specialist, Brian Portwine, died by suicide on May 27, 2001.

His mother, Peg, is refusing to stay silent about suicide. Her new life’s mission is to talk about it to anyone who will listen.

Peg knew two tours in Iraq would take its toll on her son, but it wasn’t until she starting digging into Brian’s military records that she discovered the depths of his physical and psychological injuries. What she found in those documents is fueling her fight. She now carries a cardboard cut-out of Brian out in public forcing the world, including members of Congress, to see and hear Brian’s story.

Politicians and policy makers are finally taking notice to the suicide epidemic among America’s veterans, but change is slow.

There is hope.
