Although the headline hints at the outcome, the lead of this top story takes the tone of foreshadowing, since it isn’t until the fourth paragraph that the reader discovers the Marine committed suicide. The story concentrates on Jonathan Schulze’s struggle to live a normal life after returning from serving in Iraq. His inability to be admitted to the VA hospital is explained bye his surviving family members and told in pictures.

The AP version of the Marine’s story that was covered on WCCO-TV Friday night included details of a particularly distressing combat event Schulze suffered in Iraq, and also included the personal detail that the Marine left behind a young daughter, Kaley Marie. This version also includes his family’s claim that Schulze didn’t get the help he needed to survive, whereby the Star Tribune article only seems to imply that statement.
