In Memoriam: Pvt. Giovanny Maria

Pvt. Giovanny Maria 

Private Giovanny Maria was a young 19-year-old soldier who according to arm records died of a self-inflicted gun shot while he was deployed to Afghanistan. He died on November 29, 2001 and he is survived by his guardians Mr.  and Mrs. Diomedes Esponisa.  I am not sure if the army changed its stance on putting Pvt. Maria’s name on the wall of honor. But as a veteran and someone who has worked in the mental health field. I think that he still deserves to get the same respect that his peers received when they died. Pvt. Maria was on duty as a soldier when he died, and his self-inflicted gun wound could have been indirectly linked to his job as a soldier. We all know that some people don’t deal with the stress of war very well and for Pvt. Maria it seemed like the pressure was too much for him. I just want to say thank you to him and his family and I hope that he is at peace now.
