  • Surviving Suicide: A second chance at life

    Sep 30, 2013

    I remember waking in a recovery room without the use of my hands and the sound of my now ex-wife telling me how stupid I was and always had been. However, those were not the things that bothered me the most about the situation. What bothered me was that I was actually able to live that moment. It was the feeling of failure of not succeeding in killing myself that dwarfed those details. It wasn't something that I planned to do at length. It can only be described as an impulse that feels, at the moment, like the right thing to do. Looking back, I did exhibit many of the warning signs associated with the suicidal person. I spoke of how much easier it would be to be dead and how easy it would be to do so. Most of the talk was written off by the few people that I associated with as me just being weird or morbid and was not seen as serious as it truly was. At home, I would hear how worthless I was and how my service in the Army and later the National Guard was a burden to my Family. My job was something that I had come to loathe over the years; selling used cars to the credit challenged. I was good at it and hated myself for it. I hated that having been a medic on active duty didn't count for anything on the outside. I hated everything about my life. I was trapped, feeling hopeless and lost.

  • Path to wings: Cadet faces trials during Air Assault sling load phase

    Sep 27, 2013

    As a military child, Cadet Jeff Garner traveled constantly throughout his military childhood. Every time his military Family moved, he and his siblings would have to go through the familiar yet difficult process of getting used to new schools, finding new clubs and teams to join and making new friends. They would find themselves having to rebuild their world every time. A lot of military children take these changes in stride but it is hard. Almost harder to fathom, is why they would choose to follow in their parents' footsteps. But for Garner, this lifestyle was a benefit and not a hindrance. "When my mom got stationed at Fort Campbell, I went to Fort Campbell High School and got to see what it was actually like being on a military installation," said the former Falcon. "That type of bond the community had -- it was something I was used to and felt comfortable with." "My mom being in the military definitely had an influence on my decision to pursue an ROTC scholarship," said Garner. "I really like the change I saw, that came with her being in the military and I wanted to do something like that." Now a junior and member of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps at the University of Kentucky, he recently returned to Fort Campbell to attend Air Assault School as part of his ROTC program and has chronicled his experiences.
