Marine veteran Jonathan Schulze, who served for nearly two years in Iraq, committed suicide when the Veteran's Administration hospital was not able to admit him due to a bed shortage.
Schulze suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Unable to deal with the carnage he witnessed in Iraq, he tried to get himself admitted to the VA hospital. The hospital put him 26th on a waiting list. He hung himself four days later.
"It's unfortunate because you'll have more and more vets coming back with this and it's gonna be a larger problem all the time and it's gonna need to be dealt with," said his father.
