1 suicide is 2 many

$1,610 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 29 months

On average 20 American Vets commit suicide each day. That is very sad. I'm a Chaplain in the Texas National Guard and have been in the Armed Forces for over 26 years. For the last three years I have been doing very long ruck marches on Memorial Day as a personal way to honor our veteran's sacrifices. Larast year, I marched in memorial of vets that have commited suicide wearing a sign that brought awareness to the issue. During my march several people asked if I was taking donations. I wasn't expecting that. This year I will be marching 20 miles with a 40 pound ruck. 20lbs for those that have passed and 20lbs for those that are struggling with life. 100% of the proceeds I collect will go to programs that help veterans. Please join me in this endeavor because even 1 is 2 many!

Memorial Day 2019. On average 20 American Vets commit suicide each day. That is very sad. I'm a Retired Army Chaplain. For the last four years, I have been doing very long ruck marches on Memorial Day as a personal way to honor our veteran's sacrifices. The last several years I have marched in memorial of vets that have committed suicide wearing a sign that brought awareness to the issue. During my march, several people asked if I was taking donations. I wasn't expecting that. This year I will be marching 10 miles with several vets with a 40-pound ruck sack. 20lbs for those that have passed and 20lbs for those that are struggling with life. 100% of the proceeds I collect will go to programs that help veterans. Please join me in this endeavor because even 1 is 2 many!

Thank you so much to all the people that are supporting this great cause. I just finished a 7 mile hike with a 30lb ruck. Wow. that was pretty tough but I'm up for the challenge of the 20mile/40lbs ruck. Can you do one more thing? Will you please share this on your Facebook etc? Thanks. @2manyvetsuicide or Facebook: 1 Vet Suicide is 2 Many
