"I didn't want to deal with it anymore," the veteran admitted. What he planned to leave for his love ones is the proof of the horrible depression he was going through.

You're about to see that everything happens for a reason and how Marino finding hope in the most unlikely of places is proof of that.

While standing outside in the rain, smoking a cigarette, Marino knew that he was soon to end his life. "I smoked a cigarette in the rain, it was going to be my last one," Marino stated. He was sitting outside of his barracks, with a mind that was racing, when he realized he wasn’t alone. Soon enough, Marino would find out that someone was spying on him, and they would make their presence known very shortly.

As he was sitting there, Marino heard a small meow coming from the bushes. Soon after, Marino was accompanied by a tiny, black and white, kitten! The kitten made its way to Marino, and began rubbing against his leg. Marino began to pet his new friend and the loneliness and despair he felt started to melt away. Marino found himself crying. "Maybe he knew there was something that I couldn't quite handle," he stated. This wouldn’t be the only visit the kitten would make, their relationship was only beginning.
