Military Suicide: Fight The War At Home

Some scars are not seen and your help may save a life....

In the United States, a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutes. It's clear that America's veterans aren't getting the psychological help they need in order to cope with the stresses of being a part of the military.

Alarmingly, under the guise of the 2nd Amendment, the National Defense Authorization Act bars any military leader from broaching the subject of privately-owned weapons with another service member to gauge his safety level — even if that member seems to be depressed.

Veterans need to be given resources and support so they can resume their lives after service with little burden. Discussing suicide and psychological safety should be mandatory — not prohibited by law.


  1. Hi! Do you happen to own any blogging education or it is just a completely natural gift? Thanks a lot in advance for your answer.

  2. T. Darr, No I didn't have any formal education on blogging, this was a spur of the moment thing I started after retirement. As far as a gift thank you for your kind words. I think there are some stigma's that people will not talk about even though the problems exists. Thanks again for your comment and I promise I will work harder on trying to keep this updated.
