Ok, folks, this is not going to be a typical video from us. I am going to talk about something that is very near and dear to my heart and it is not easy. I have found two “projects” that I think are worthy of your support in dealing with this.
So what are we talking about? Veteran Suicide!
Did you know that on average 22 veterans take their own lives every day? That is a totally unacceptable number. Below I have links and information about each of the projects that I am talking about, as well as links and phone numbers for the resources I mention in the video and the ones that I don’t.
If you can’t figure out who to turn to and you need help, reach out to me.

To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans.
VA carries out four specific missions to make good on that commitment.
Veterans Health Care: VA’s Veterans Health Administration is the largest integrated health care network in the United States, with 1,255 health care facilities serving 9 million enrolled Veterans each year.
Veterans Benefits: Veterans can earn a range of benefits that help them transition back to civilian life in the country they fought to defend. Through the Veterans Benefits Administration, VA helps servicemembers transition out of military service, and assists with education, home loans, life insurance and much more.
National Cemeteries: The job of the National Cemetery Administration is to make sure those who served this nation are never forgotten. NCA provides dignified burial services for Veterans and eligible family members by maintaining 142 cemeteries as national shrines and providing lasting tributes that commemorate their service and sacrifice to our nation.
The Fourth Mission: VA’s “Fourth Mission” is to improve the Nation’s preparedness for response to war, terrorism, national emergencies, and natural disasters by developing plans and taking actions to ensure continued service to veterans, as well as to support national, state, and local emergency management, public health, safety and homeland security efforts.
