Especially with alcohol, long term abuse changes your brain in horrible ways. I know when I had a drinking problem my mood and demeanor changed completely. It makes you irritable and can turn very nice people into angry, depressed, and aggressive monsters.
With all due respect to your buddy, once you sign up, you sign your life away and I'll put it this way, how many other lives have fueled the military machine of fire?

Wow, didn't realize things were so bad over there. I know that it's pretty bad over there with the sun cycles and freezing colds and radiation levels and whatnot, but just wow. I've always had dreams of living there my whole life, now I'm not so sure anymore.

They actually call them sad lights. A friend of mine has one as well. They really are nice.
Seasonal affective disorder is cabin fever on steroids.
Very sorry for your loss of a friend. I was wondering where the suicide came from? It was not mentioned in the article you posted, nor in the other article that was posted. The thing that strikes me as odd is that his job was to gather intelligence. What might he have found that could be fatal(to the finder)? Again sorry for your loss.
I guess the obvious and most glaring reasoning for his death is that of suicide, and is probably going to be the offical reasoning in the end.. it's just, I know Shane and I just truly can't picture him killing himself like that, I mean this guy would get along with almost everybody he came up to,
