Veteran suicide is a continuing problem. Our nation’s heroes, racked with posttraumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, depression and anxiety become mired in hopelessness. Struggles because of military service or the transition to civilian life all too often result in the Veteran turning to substance abuse or taking his or her own life. Estimates are that tens of thousands of Veterans died by their own hand – far exceeding the combat deaths of this century. Military-Veterans Advocacy® has joined with the Benjamin Ware Legacy Fund to promote the o2 Project – Veterans Get Outside Day in the United States and Canada. The event occurs annually on the second Saturday of June.
