My name is Connie Boglis, I am the former partner of Afghanistan Veteran Jesse Bird. We were together for two years and during this time we both battled a war. Jesse returned a civilian, with nothing. He struggled to transfer his skills in the army into a resume and when he applied for meaningful work, he was rejected bc he was diagnosed with PTSD, alcohol dependence, anxiety and depression. Jesse needed these diagnosis to access The Department of Veteran's Affairs Veteran pension. On June 27th 2017, Jesse took his life. No acknowledgment, no compensation. Nothing. This is happening everyday.
