1 suicide is 2 many


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!
