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.
