Major Christopher Galloway Dead at [FReeper M1Tanker, RIP]
Flopping Aces ^ | 8/16/09 | OhioSA

Posted on 08/16/2009 10:33:19 AM PDT by OhioSA

"On June 30th Major Chris Galloway took his own life. He had come back from Afghanistan in April, and things just weren’t the same we’re told."

"Why’d we lose him? Who the hell knows. There is no rational reason for doing such a thing, so using reason to figure it out is both impossible and ineffectual. It accomplishes nothing. In the end, he’s still gone. For the sake of his wife, his kids, and for ourselves it’s better to remember him for who he was. Given that he was so much to so many, there’s a lot to think about. He was a husband, father, soldier, a writer for Flopping Aces, and I consider him my friend. We all consider him our friend. May God bless him and give him peace. He’s earned it."

I searched FR to see if anyone had posted this and I couldn't find anything. (If I missed it, I apologize.)

Major Galloway posted here at FR as M1Tanker since 2003. He was a contributor at Flopping Aces and also at Tanker Brothers. Rest in peace Chris.

Horrible news. Anyone out there with dark thoughts on leaving us prematurely: please reach out! - even something as simple as dropping any sane FReeper a mail.

Rest in peace, Chris. Your country owed you - and now your family - a debt of gratitude.

Admin Mod - can you add “(Freeper M1Tanker)” to the title? It should be made clear that we lost one of our own.

This is one of the saddest things I have seen in a while and his posts here on FR are chilling. I blame the Marxist in the WH for his death. After reading his posts, I know what he was going through. I wish he would have gotten help but I think the assault to his patriotism was just more than he could take. God bless him and prayers to his family.
