My big brother

My big brother, who was two years older than I, died by a gunshot to his head. I was a freshman in college, and he was serving in the Air Force in Maine. This year he would have been 64 years old. It hurt so much when he died. Sometimes I wonder if the Air Force could have been something to prevent it.
