I got an email from his wife on Christmas. I didn't get to check my email until today, and it was from his wife saying he died. He ets'ed arouned the same time I did. He moved to his hometown in Puerto Rico and was there for a bit, and he couldn't make ends meet, so he decided to go back to the Army. I just gotten an email from his wife saying he passed. It really sucks to hear shit like this. I'm very sorry for him and his family. It hurts me a lot especially when he was the first people that I met back when I was a cherry. I knew him the first day I was in my unit about 5 years ago. Its hard to even know that he's gone now. I wish it never had happened. And as selfish as this may sound, I wish someone that I didn't know could have died instead of him. RIP Willy.
