A Step Into the Past

Lucille and Duane Schliep look at gravestones at the old site of the Zion Lutheran Church, following a special service on the former site where the church once sat. Due to the Naval Ammunition Depot opening, the goverment bought the land the church sat on, forcing Clay Center citizens to move the church into town, for fear that the church would be burned down. The cemetery, unable to be moved, now sits on government-owned land and is only accessible through approval by government officials. Some of the gravestones are written in German.

It’s not necessarily young soldiers returning home from Iraq or Afghanistan committing suicide—it’s just as likely to be men and women who also fought in Vietnam. Aside from that, 2,500 active duty personnel have committed suicide since 2001. When these soldiers leave the war to come home, they bring the trauma of it with them
