Voice of Strength: Better person, better Soldier

1 min read

Spc. Kaleb Engberg, a U.S. Army Reserve Soldier with the 79th Military Police Company, discusses the loss of a friend and a fellow Soldier, and how these events led to his own hospitalization for suicidal ideation. This story is part of a series of videos for “Voices of Strength,” a campaign produced by the 200th MP Command’s Suicide Prevention and Public Affairs Staff Offices. The video series offers a revamped look at suicide prevention, using real, unscripted stories of U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers involved with suicide, either through personal thoughts or attempts, the loss of a loved one, loss of a Soldier, or through the perspective of the investigative officers. The goal of these videos is to offer new content for suicide prevention training and discussion during unit training activities to reduce suicide rates across the force.
