Veterans Affairs: Taking Veterans Concerns Seriously
Every day, 22 – 30 Veterans are dying by suicide daily. As shocking as the number is, it may actually be higher. The figure, released by the Department of Veterans Affairs in February, 2014, is based on the agency’s own data and numbers reported by 21 states from 1999 through 2011.
If you or someone you know served in the military or has been deployed to combat, you know that it isn’t always easy to transition from combat back to civilian life. Your experiences as a veteran may give you a different perspective than the people around you. And trauma related to war and combat can lead to post – traumatic stress, depression and hopelessness.
We owe a great deal to the heroes who have sacrificed so much for us. The need to support Veterans has never been more critical than it is now.
Next Sunday, we discuss Veteran’s issues with Gordon Brown, Founder/CEO for Team Veteran.
Gordon served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He also served in Guam in the mid 1970′s.
Brown was a Senior Counselor, Suicide Prevention Officer, Military Liaison Officer for Narcotics Anonymous and he initiated the therapy program that eventually became the core therapy standard for the entire Naval Drug Rehabilitation. programs.
