Who We Support:
A VA study on mental health concluded that on average 20 Veterans commit suicide a day and that the suicide rate is highest among Veterans between 18 and 29. Our mission is to help support organizations working toward veteran suicide prevention. Help us defeat these horrific statistics through donations, participation and sharing with others. It's important to get our message out there, especially during these difficult times. Our goal is to support The War Fighter Community Foundation, Mission 22, Broken Warriors Angels in their great prevention efforts.
