Suicide... The Silent Killer (Last in a series)

By Kayla Swanson and Stephen Thomas

 Troy Yocum doesn’t remember much about his grandfather, Sgt. Joseph Leake.

Leake served in the Army Air Guard for four years during World War II before returning to civilian life at home.

When Yocum was only two years old, Leake died by suicide in 1981 after dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder for over 30 years.

“He struggled with PTSD before it was a defined condition,” Yocum said.
