Dan Flaugh joined the US Army and fought over in Iraq. Upon his return he struggled with PTSD, depression and survivor's guilt. Last December Dan had gone missing for a week, and was found the day after Christmas. He took his own life. We buried him on New Year's Eve. Flash forward a few months and a memorial 5K had been established in his hometown - Vinton, Iowa.
