    I bury my buddy and coworker Monday. It’s kind of just hitting me.

    Soldier, Marine, LEO, prickly fucker. He’s in a better place.

    Fuck man...

    In short, he died from complications from cancer. It was in remission (he said it was all gone) but he wound up having a stroke and didn’t make it.

    I feel partly at fault because I pulled strings to get him back to work. Light duty desk stuff of course, and only after the doctor gave him the go ahead and everything. The guy is a bull headed Marine, man, and he basically begged me to get him back to work. He was angry about being stuck at the desk! But of course now I regret doing what I did. It was on me, personnel wouldn’t have let him back if it wasn’t for me. I’m his direct supervisor.

    fuck idk I feel shitty

    What makes you think it hastened his passing? Just as likely it helped him enjoy a bit of the time he had left. It's hard not to blame yourself for something like this, I'm sure, but try. Remind yourself that what it comes down to is you were doing what he wanted, which I'd guess was to be around his colleagues.

    Just my 2 cents FWIW.

    It was the exact thing I thought too, though.

    Yeah, I'm with hunter on this. I don't see how someone cleared by a Dr. working just desk stuff could increase chances for a stroke. Not like you put him back into the field early and he had a heart attack chasing down or fighting with a suspect.

    Strokes are horrible. Just a quiet time bomb ticking away that could happen at any time.

    Yeah, this.

    Sounds like he was the type of guy that would have been miserable piddling around and not being useful. Sounds like AC saved him from spending his last days feeling impotent.

    I think my new goal in the WR is getting @Turtle Up to make a single God Damn post.

    It's kind of weird because it seems like this guy knows us all intimately and we have no clue who he is.

    That was my 2019 goal and I failed. The torch has been passed to you.
