News and issues relating to Civilian Contractors working Overseas

Two Civilian Contractor’s lost to PTSD Suicide this week

It is with sorrow that knows no bounds this evening

that we must announce that

the contractor community has lost two more lives

to PTSD

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 and friends

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.

Please, everyone, PTSD Kills

  1. What are the names of the Civilian Contractors with PTSD who committed suicide. I have an acquaintance who is a contractor. Haven’t heard from him in over a month. Concerned.

    • We’ve not yet been told we can release these names but will very soon be publishing a memorial for each.

      • Any word on the names of civilian contractors with PTSD who committed suicide. Been searching with nothing being reported yet.
