Jason Cooper was an Army Reservist just back from serving in the Iraq War. He wasn't the same when he got back from Iraq. He was a really upbeat, happy, funny kid before he left. But you could tell his smile was gone once he came home. He also had a hard time paying attention. He'd space off while you were trying to talk to him as his thoughts were floating off somewhere else. And the reaction of some of his friends caught him by surprise. He was excited to see them, and he thought they would be, `Hey, Coop, good to see you.' But instead, the first thing that would come out was, `Jas, you shoot anybody?' He was so taken aback he didn't know how to answer. He'd just say, `I don't want to talk about it.' Four months after returning home to Iowa, he hanged himself. He was 23.
