More than 60,000 veterans died by suicide between 2008 and 2017, according to a recent report released by the VA. These deaths could have been preventable with a focus on what we can do to support veterans once they are no longer active.
18 to 22 military veteran commit suicide a day – this is unacceptable. The causes for this tragedy are typically depression fueled by the reaction to PTSD, survivor’s guilt, or low self-esteem due to unpreparedness for civilian life.
There needs to be additional support for those who have bravely fought to keep America free. It is unacceptable that there are not more comprehensive procedures in place that allow for suitability for civilian life screening during discharge.
We are leaving too many veterans unprepared to enter back into society, and we need to do better for those that put their lives on the line for us and for our country.

We want to put in place changes to the existing military discharge process.
First, we want to put a step in place that would screen soldiers for suitability for civilian life during the discharge process.
Second, we are advocating for an additional process to screen for PTSD, survivors guilt, and other mental issues.
