Dave wanted to kill myself in the worst way. And that was in more ways than one.
Once, he shot himself in the chest. When he survived that, the medical people called it a miracle.
He also stabbed himself several times. He lost a dangerous amount of blood but lived.
He also slit his throat and was declared dead. But when he was in the morgue he woke up.
Then Dave decided to join the U.S. Marine Corps. He had an idea on how to make a successful suicide attempt.
He would wait until he was deployed overseas. There, in either Iraq or Afghanistan, he would be killed by a car bomb while he was trying to save some of his fellow Marines.
If things happened that way, his family would get benefits and his younger brother could get a scholarship to college. He's also be called a hero for his actions, which would make everyone happy.
