Maj. Gen. John Rossi, 55, death ruled a suicide
« on: October 28, 2016, 10:23:06 PM »
The Army acknowledged Friday that Maj. Gen. John Rossi committed suicide on July 31, making him the highest-ranking soldier ever to have taken his own life.

Rossi, who was 55, was just two days from pinning on his third star and taking command of Army Space and Missile Command when he killed himself at his home at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama. '

Investigators could find no event, infidelity, misconduct or drug or alcohol abuse, that triggered Rossi's suicide, said a U.S. government official with direct knowledge of the investigation. It appears that Rossi was overwhelmed by his responsibilities, said the official who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation.

Something doesn't smell right.  No indicators, no note...

Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*

Space and Missile Command?  Remember all that a while back about the shakeup in officers with nuclear weapons responsibilities?
