Demanding a handout in the worst way.

My husband used to work with a guy who killed himself a few years ago. One day he just snapped at work and went on fmla leave. At the time we were not speaking to him. But heard through the grapevine he was in rehab for his drinking. His wife and him were separated at the time.

When he got out he went to fl to he with his wife and kids. He kept saying he was going to kill himself and she pretty much said go a head I don't care in which he killed himself one night.
Before working with my husband like most people at their job he was active duty military. Now his job in the military was an air craft mechanic just like everyone my husband works with that was military. His wife is now telling everyone he was a seal and served in a combat zone. Now PTSD is the reason he killed himself. Umm no he was on an aircraft carrier and never served a day behind enemy lines as a navy seal. His best friend from the navy works with my husband and they were deployed every time together.
She's now pissed the VA is not giving her money for this so called PTSD when there's no documents stating he had it. She's Facebook now saying my husband won't die in vain. To me this is the worst way you can demand a hand out. There are real service members that need the money for treatment not some woman who's lying about what her husband did during his service.

That's pretty messed up. My husband is in the military and he was also on a carrier. He never stepped foot off of the ship when they were in a combat zone because they weren't allowed to. Now, some of the sailors did get a little nutty, but that was more of a "cabin fever" issue. I've known a couple of guys/ladies suffering from PTSD, but thankfully have a good support system at home. It sounds like, if that guy did have PTSD, his wife wasn't exactly trying to help him when he was alive :/

If he was military did he have the $400,000 life insurance?

That is so sad. 1. That he seemed to be suffering and killed himself. And 2. That his wife is that cold....

He was out of the military. We have a 500k life insurance through my husbands work but he didn't pay for it and it voided if you took your own life.

His ship never went into the gulf while he was in the military. He served 4 years and got out. His wife is crying poor me now for attention. She made a scene at the funeral because of his family. Granted he wasn't the best husband in the world but you don't sit at the casino and ignore your phone when your husbands threatening to kill himself.

Oh she sat at the casino when her BIL who was active duty at the time was calling her to go to him. He begged her to go his brother and get him help and she said no. She wouldn't even send emts or the local cops out to check on him.
