"It's absolutely horrible and very heartbreaking," said Gena Hulse, 51, a Navy veteran from Gloversville who is being treated for PTSD at the Albany VA. "Veterans are outraged. We were wondering if he was given thorough enough care."
Stewart A. Mosher, 34, appeared to have jumped from the top level of the parking garage on the VA campus just after noon on Nov. 27, according to a police report obtained by the Times Union. Five people, including a VA employee and a nurse from Albany Medical Center Hospital, witnessed Mosher hit the pavement in front of 67 Veterans Way, police said.
Mosher lived in Selkirk and joined the Marine Corps right after graduating from New Lebanon Junior-Senior High School in 2000. Four years later, he was discharged with post-traumatic stress disorder, which he self-medicated with "entheogens," or psychoactive drugs, he wrote on his Facebook page. Emergency responders were called to the VA around 12:10 p.m. last Friday and found Mosher unconscious and unresponsive, according to police.
