Memorial Day 2017 – Veteran Suicide Awareness

On Memorial we honor the fallen and their ultimate sacrifice. Often people confuse Memorial Day with Veteran’s Day. In fact, one of the common things you may hear from veterans on Memorial Day is a reminder that the day is to memorialize those who have passed on before us. It can be a tough day as we remember fallen comrades.

Even so, one of the ways we can honor the fallen is by bringing awareness to the battles some veterans are still fighting–at home. Every day a staggering 22 veterans commit suicide. Veterans Crisis Line 1-800-273-8255 or text 838255 for 24/7 support — for both veterans and their loved ones.
