22 A DAY
I was very distressed to learn that over 20 veterans commit suicide every day in the United States. Vets make up only 9% of the population however account for over 18% of all suicides! In 2014 more than 7,400 vets ended their own lives. A veteran commits suicide approximately every 65 minutes!
I am now sharing proceeds from my sales to “Operation Zero” who’s goal is “zero veterans attempting suicide”.
Please share your thoughts about this below. Thank you.
