Hello there /k/ board. I'd like to make a short post.
My very good, very slavic, very loyal friend recently passed away. He was former military, and an outstanding soldier while he was enlisted. He was ADSEP'd under chapter 12 for substance abuse. After his spouse left him and took his child, and the conflict overseas died down, it all took a toll on him. Even if others didn't see it. He always put on a smile, always the life of the party. He loved /k/, he loved his moist nugget, his SKS, and his bow chang norinco(?) radio equipment. You guys were good family to him even if he did not post often or got mad shit for liking Glocknades.
Until the end, he was a wonderful person and no matter what demons he had inside he made sure never to be negative around others. He's saved my life and countless' others multiple times. Truly a great young man who was gone too soon. Two days again he became blacked out intoxicated and consumed 24mg of xanax he had for prescription. He went to sleep and never woke up.
He didn't have a will, or much of a family besides me, his brothers in arms he still spoke with after EAS, and you, /k/. You were his home and he lurked every day he was home. I'm not as well acquainted with this board as he was, but in his last few months y'all seemed to really make him happy if at least only on the outside.
I love you David, you were a good man, a good Russian, who loved America and had a passion for kebab removal like no one else.
Here's to you, you crazy slavic piece of shit. Keep you kevlar strapped and rest in peace. I'll see you in Valhalla brother.
Be sure to poor one out of him, /k/ommandos. He loved you all.
Until we regroup.
No one knows if it was intentional. He may have planned it, but he never told anyone he wanted to go like that.. I just hope he went peacefully.
Everyone, himself included, expected and almost wished for his SAPIs not to stop a round and him die with honor. I still can't believe he's fucking gone. I don't even know how to feel. As soon as I learned what had happened, my first reaction was to call his mobile...
I've been crying all fucking night. I miss the motherfucker so much.
captcha: 187 (real fuckin' funny)
You realize that as a Russian soldier he was almost certainly raped during his enlistment, right? It's not even a "common occurrence" over there, it's a fucking epidemic for them with how systemic it is. Shit, plenty of Russian conscripts are killing themselves after being forced into prostitution by fellow soldiers of higher rank.
RIP IN PEACE NIGGA, RIP IN PEACE!
I MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN YOU, YOU CRAZY MOTHERFUCKER, BUT YOU'RE MY BATTLE BUDDY THROUGH /k/. HOPE LOLI WHERE YOU ARE NOW, IF YOU DON'T WANT HER, I'LL TAKE HER.
He was born Russian. Moved here at a young age. He was USAR. Most patriotic motherfucker in his entire platoon. Despite the eventual NJPs and what not he was a stellar soldier. That's all he ever wanted to be. He was 19D. AB qual'd. He would've made NCO one day..
He loved classic rock.. and EDM for some reason. Crazy dude man.
Here's another pic of the cyka. David loved texas culture and assimilated and learned the language better than anyone else. He was a true Russian American.
Patriot till the end.
>Shit I skimmed too quick to see EAS.
RIP fellow vet. I'm glad you probably weren't raped like I'd thought and I hope one of my shitposts brought a smile to your face at some point.
Rest in Peace you magnificent fucker
Red Army, US Army, he dream was to be a soldier. He almost got that chance. ADSEPd before his unit was set to a rotation near RC East. He was so exited to go fight... I wish i knew what was going through his head.
If it was anyone else, I'd be throwing shit about the sun keeps turning and so on. I've lost brothers in Kandahar and Helmand. Tikrit. Ramadi.
But he really hit home. Like, why fucking now? Why couldn't it have been fucking me? I don't have a future, he had his whole life ahead of him. God fucking dammit man. It's hard.
Only Cope and the occasional cigar. He used to sit in smoke pits with the other grunts but he took care of himself. He had a carefree attitude almost, but still cared enough to be a good person as himself and to others. It feels so fucking wrong him being gone. It was just last weekend we were out drinking and talking about the future.. The guilt i'm feeling right now is beyond anything. I just wish he would've said something to somebody, even /k/.
>But he really hit home. Like, why fucking now? Why couldn't it have been fucking me? I don't have a future, he had his whole life ahead of him. God fucking dammit man. It's hard.
This too will pass, man. It ain't your fault.
RIP Slavbro. If I lived on big land, I'd go fire 7 shots from my nugget into the air.
Apparently Russians are more prone to suicide. I even know why.
Whole suicide thing seems strange though. From what you described it sounds like it wasn't necessarily pre-planned. Sorry to hear.
I don't even know what to do about his funeral.. He's at the county morgue atm. I don't him in a pine box. He said he didn't want to be in Arlington at some point but neither of us ever really discussed what would happen if he passed.
Knowing him, he'd probably tell me to cremate him then mix his ashes with Stoli and take shots. Jesus fucking christ guys.. I feel like such a pussy right now but an entire portion of my life is gone. He's not coming back. I've never been so out of it before.
I didn't cry as much when my mother died.
scouts out i guess. guess i need to find the nearest VFW..
>Russians more porn to suicide.
Where did you hear that...
>comrade I am concern
He never talked much about home. Only about how beautiful siberia was and wonderful novosibirsk(?) was where he grew up. We were supposed to take a trip to st. petersburg one day too, man. I've never been to Russia.
he had no family besides me. the only reason im posting this bullshit here is because y'all were his family, or the closest thing to it. he loved rickyrecon. he loved /k/ humor. he'd always jokingly say "cheeki breeki" and laugh, playing against stereotypes. There's no one else to remember him and in my fucked mind right now i just want someone to remember him. y'all actually mean a lot to him. not a joke brother.
Wikipedia disagrees. Wikipedia says post-soviet countries, Japan and SK (same reason for both), Dunno why Guyana and Sri Lanka are on there.
y'all are real comrades, thank you all, sorry for shitting up the board... it's a difficult time for me and everyone (very few people) involved. you motherfuckers are decent human beings. thank you again. i don't know what i'll have to do but keep moving on. thanks for the support /k/omrades
one last pic of the asshole then im out.. see you on the other side friend. good night comrades.
I'll tell you one thing you need to do anon. You need to go get his SKS and nugget from his house before his ex-wife takes them to a pawn shop, since you say he's got no other family. Your call on anything else, but you know both of you would hate the idea of her inevitably doing that.
Keep them safe and well maintained for his child, and go shoot them when you miss him really bad since keeping a gun locked away forever is just cruelty.
i can't even hold his nugget without turning into a sobfest.. but it'll take time. his ex doesn't know yet but ill make sure that whore doesn't disgrace any of belongings. his rifles were his life. so was stoli..
Don't you fucking leave anon until you read this:
You have to do this quick or you'll lose the chance. Don't let his kid be one of those poor anons posting here about how their firearm heirlooms from dead ancestors are gone forever thanks to a shitty parent.
he did tell me to make sure his babies.. his weapons would be secure should he pass. it was a long time ago but he loves them as much as he loves his child. ill raise that son my god damn self if i have to. he's blood to see. th nagant and sks and related hardware will be his when he's of age. im not going to let his mother fuck his life up like he did my brother here.
David's son is all he has left. illl make damn sure he's taken care of. no matter what. he might as well be my own flesh and blood
>his ex doesn't know yet but ill make sure that whore doesn't disgrace any of belongings. his rifles were his life. so was stoli..
Remember, "I think he mentioned giving them to a friend before he EAS'd" if she asks.
You owe it to him to teach his child about who he was some day, and pass on the rifles if they aren't a complete anti-gun liberal, because his ex-wife will surely do neither.
Yea. This is going to sound dick, but I don't think you will take care of the kid. People don't even take care of their own kids.
Make some promises you can keep (to yourself) that aren't as ambitious, but make sure you keep them.
i'm fairly well off.. single. GI bill paid for school. I've been responsible. I'm no single father but.. i'll do whatever i fucking can to make sure his child lives a happy life. He doesn't need to be around my brother's psychotic ex. He can bleed me dry, i don't care, i owe that to my brother David. I wish i just could've done more, you know? all he had to do was ask..
i'll do what i can.. she's unfit to be a mother anyway. not even biological. just common law stuff. i'll do whatever it takes to make sure that child has a stable home enviroment. david would want his child to be happy.
fuck man. why? just fucking why. i could've helped him,..
he was more human than anyone. such a loving soul loyal. passtionate. he was a great dude.. fucking christ
RIP True Slavic Warrior. He can have lavash with me anytime, in /k/ heaven.

his baby's mother past away. it took him a while but he found another "woman" who he though would be capable of being a mother, he could be too trusting sometimes. it's really sad. the bitch he ended up with had the maternal instinct of a god damn crackwhore.
"but i looooove her"
i could've done more.. i didn't realize it'd come to this, you know?
Man letting her leave with his child... fuck. Yeah I'd be considering that end too, how can you not get your own biological kid back?
If you're serious about getting his kid out from under her thumb you'll almost certainly need to talk to a lawyer. Sooner the better.
>i could've done more
That thinking is bullshit and you know it.
You were his friend and damn if he had some demons. It wasn't weakness on his part or negligence on yours.
You won't find closure by wondering what you did or didn't do or if you could have done anything to begin with, that shit is in the past.
Mourn your friend and remember him but don't let it start controlling you.
op here. i appreciate everthing... the support, the advice.. but i have to go. ive been drinking so much just so i can be numb. i love you all. i love you david. all of you take care.. jesus christ
goodnight.. rip ot david and thank all of you... it helped
Your friends a fucking coward who killed himself because he couldn't handle life like a man. Some people are destined to be nothing more than a mindless killing machine solider that just follows orders, he couldn't handle the freedom of civ life.
burn in hell fucker
Just hide the thread and move on nigger gat damn you're just as bad as Zed
I'm not a keyboard warrior, but you can try and discredit the truth, its a really pathetic attempt though, resorting to ad hominem.
I'd never sign my life away to ruin peoples life's on the other side of the planet, so i guess a keyboard is much better than a "warrior"
Clearly you're 2 srs for /k/ let me direct you to
>im a normal, educated, well adjusted person.
I had a friend from Siberia end himself around that age. He really wanted to fit in but he was just too outrageous.
He drank a 30 pack and decapitated himself.
The older I get the less hurt I feel, the more I look at it as just a damned shame.
OP: Make sure you are mentally there at the funeral. Let it hurt. Give yourself plenty of space to grieve. Time will help you put the whole thing in perspective.
I'm guessing this is the first friend you have lost, if you play you life cards right this wont be the only friend you bury. Learn to deal, its part of being alive.
RIP /k/omrade from the motherland. You will be in my thoughts.
A drink for David.
Vaya con dios, russian comrade.
Tell the big boss up there he shall prepare a fun-range-disneyland for when we all follow you some day.
>yfw rapists and scum of the earth lives up the age of 80, 90 and more but good young men die before they turn 30
This is the board that your friend is leaving behind
