    WASHINGTON – Handsome and friendly, Clay Hunt so epitomized a vibrant Iraq veteran that he was chosen for a public service announcement reminding veterans that they aren't alone.

    The 28-year-old former Marine corporal earned a Purple Heart after taking a sniper's bullet in his left wrist. He returned to combat in Afghanistan. Upon his return home, he lobbied for veterans on Capitol Hill, road-biked with wounded veterans and performed humanitarian work in Haiti and Chile.

    Then, on March 31, Hunt bolted himself in his Houston apartment and shot himself.

    Passion has a price. All to often...Men that try to fly like angels on wings of hope and passion come crashing down when those wings turn into despair.
