Carrie Walsh said that in 2005 her husband lost more than $20,000 in military slot machines. He went AWOL, only to be found sitting in front of a video slot machine on a military post in Seoul.
He was forced to resign from the Army and spent time homeless on the streets of Las Vegas, Nevada.
In 2006, Walsh returned to Maine and tried to reconnect with his wife and their two small children, but his gambling addiction continued. On September 26, 2006, Walsh, 34, went to Maine's Baxter State Park and killed himself with a gunshot to the head.

Although the idea of profiting off a soldier like this is a problem, I see a bigger issue at hand. What worries me is that treatment wasn't given to the soldier for his gambling addiction.
