Ten Years Ago Today
We lost Tim Eysselinck to PTSD, to RONCO, to the Iraq War, to the lies.
The lies continue to this day despite having been made boldly public.
Due to the corporate takeover at every level of our government the
Government Contract Companies and the DBA Insurance Companies
are afforded a License to Kill
Tim Eysselinck remains an Uncounted Casualty
Tim’s mother, Janet Burroway, has just published a book
Losing Tim is a memoir by a mother about a soldier son who killed himself. It’s not an easy read. But it’s a beautiful one. Burroway, a National Book Award nominee, welcomes readers to grieve along with her, while also providing a lens into how soldiers, and military contractors, like her son, are changed by their combat experiences. Jonathan Shay, author of Achilles in Vietnam: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character, a highly acclaimed volume on PTSD, and a 2007 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, comments in the foreword, ”To me, the pain recalls Homer’s Iliad, in which, as James Tatum puts it in The Mourner’s Song, ‘the beauty [of the poetry] is in the killing.”’
