US Army Specialist Brennan K. Conklin, Retired, of Durham, NC, formerly assigned to the 2nd Engineering Battalion, 595th Sapper Company, died on September 15, 2013. Brennan was deployed for nine months in northern Afghanistan when an IED attack left him with an injured back, TBI, and PTSD. Six months after his deployment, he retired from the military, and upon returning home, found it difficult to cope with PTSD and civilian life. A year later, he took his own life. He is survived by his wife and son, a mother and father, two sisters and a brother. Let us not forget that veterans returning home need our help more than ever, and let us thank Brennan for reminding us of that.
