We write this note with heavy hearts, we have lost another RCMP member, Sergeant Léo Girouard who lost his battle with an OSI, Thursday July 2nd, 2015.
Our hearts go out to Léo who struggled for so long, his family who journeyed with him, and all those who knew, worked with and loved him, all of whom are struggling to deal with the aftermath of this tragedy.
Please know that we at Families of the RCMP for PTSD Awareness are devastated and are working tirelessly to do all we can to stop these tragedies from occurring.
We send a plea to each and every one of you to reach out to those who are retired or those you know are struggling with PTSD or an OSI, to both the members and their families, and let them know they are not alone, that you care, we care and we are all here for each other.
RIP Sergeant – You and your contribution to Canada and society will not be forgotten.
