Sailor Heroin Deaths

Headline from the Great Lakes Bulletin:
“These shipmates made a life-changing decision…R.I.P.”
“Bad decisions lead to deadly consequences”

It then lists the names of three Sailors who have died this year, actually within the last 5 months, of heroin intoxication (some with other drugs in the mix). These were young men who made “bad” choices that cost them their lives, their potential lost.

The article concentrates on one the young men enough that you really get to know him. He really is just a kid wanting to enjoy life and with plans for the future. All that snuffed out with these decisions.

Did any of these young men know or consider the real risks of these actions? Drugs they can make you high and they can make you die.
