Losing Tim

Hosted by

At Fort Hood yesterday, Army Specialist Ivan Lopez killed three people and wounded 16 others before taking his own life. He was undergoing treatment for mental health issues after serving in Iraq. Today, we’re going to talk about another soldier, Timothy Alan Eysselinck, who survived the service, but killed himself after returning home. His mother, novelist and poet Janet Burroway, has written a memoir about her son called Losing Tim.
