THIS THIS Happened Today! MY HOMETOWN! I Will be seriously crushed if it is a Veteran I know or helped in the past
EVERY WEEK I am reading about a Veteran who died by Suicide! When is OUR SOCIETY gonna stand up and tell Congress and the DOD to get off their backsides and do something about this??
YES Every person in our country needs to stand up and DO their job as a U.S. citizen and address this epidemic with our government! Simply saying “we need to do better for our veterans” is not enough and you all need to start calling and emailing your congressmen and Congresswomen about this issue because THAT is part of YOUR job as a United States citizen and how YOU “can do better by veterans”
btw, THIS is the 4th incident of a veteran dying by suicide outside a VA facility THIS MONTH! This does not include the average of 22 veterans a day who die by suicide EVERY DAY!
