Justin was a wonderful man. He always had a smile on his face and was always willing to help anyone in need. He was a loving husband to my sister and a great example for his step-son, Stahle. Justin was deployed on multiple tours and was supposed to be deployed again in Feb 2017. In April of 2016 he was deployed on a humanitarian stent in Dominican Republic. Upon his return home things drastically changed, Justin was dealing with PTSD, depression and sucidial thoughts. He tried to get help from the DOD but they failed him and on December 24, 2016, Justin took his own life. Now my sister is left to try to put the pieces of her and her son’s life back together. This is the worst nightmare that you could ever imagine.
