Neil C. Landsberg
Entered Into Eternal Rest
Thursday, May 9, 2013
Neil Christopher Landsberg of Frederick, Maryland, passed away May 9, 2013. Born January 13, 1980 in Wichita, Kansas, he attended Thomas Johnson High School, Frederick, MD and Valley Forge Military Academy in PA. He graduated from the Citadel, Charleston, SC served with distinction as a Captain in USAF Special Operations receiving the Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, Meritorious Service Medal, Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, and Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.
Neil was an avid athlete who loved sailing, windsurfing, bicycling, swimming, the outdoors, animals and his friends. He volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Team Rubicon and assisted regularly at Walter Reed Medical Center helping wounded combat veterans adjust to a new life.
His death is a tragic and needless one. Neil was obviously in great pain and unable to confide in any friend or family member for whatever reason.
This tragedy however DOES NOT diminish the man that was. Neil served his country with great honor and pride.
Let us remember.....
"Suicide is not chosen; it happens
when pain exceeds
resources for coping with pain."
God bless you all ...
