On March 7, 2007, Army Spc. Trevor Hogue was inside his barracks in Baghdad, describing his morning on the battlefield. "I saw things today that I think will mess me up for life," Hogue typed to his mother, Donna. Last week, he committed suicide by hanging himself in the backyard of his childhood home. He was 24 years old.
