Faces of Fallen – their Emotional War
September 28, 2016
Where is the national outcry as we deploy more troops daily ?
We were losing 20-24+ veterans a day to suicide now– emotional wounds and emotional wars that take our heroes with hardly any notice . The number has changed – it is no longer 22 per day .
Suicides in our military have SPIKED as of the latest report from Department of Defense on 1/5/16 .
We need to wake up . Every American needs to become part of the hope and support our heroes need . Without caring for our veterans and troops when they need us , we will need to forget about a volunteer military force and look forward to the draft . That is the cold reality for anyone who wishes to keep sending heroes over to conflicts and wars , and any administration which does not help enough to ensure the VERY best care emotionally and physically of our veterans before ,during and after they come home . We are failing our veterans when the Suicide rate is rising .
This page will show some of the
faces of the fallen to suicide where there is NO shame but only a desperate plea for our country to start paying more attention and help us end this epidemic …this national crisis . And now military women are on the rise with suicides.
Rest in peace heroes – you should still be here with all of us. We have failed you as a nation . In your memory, we will try to help your brave brothers and sisters still here and fighting their silent emotional wars. It is up to each and every one of us to #ReachaVet .
And it is up to us to push for action and better solutions to reduce these suicides as we have here :
