With veteran suicide at a high rate, Warriors for Freedom Foundation, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization, have committed to raising awareness to this issue. September 1, 2014 we launched a “Remembering the 22” campaign in honor of the 22 confirmed veterans who commit suicide each day due to untreated combat-related stressors and injuries.
Enough is enough
– Enough of veteran traumatization
we must not become trapped by the story of the veteran at the brink of suicide. yes, it does happen, but it’s time for us to unite and give each other a platform to step forward.
– Enough to support a life
there is a time to reflect on trauma, but there is also a time to celebrate life. would we rather spend $300 on a kickass scuba program so that a veteran can have an incredible life experience, or $300 on a memorial plaque after another veteran is lost to suicide?
– Enough of old coping mechanisms
enough is saying, “we are brave enough to pursue help, to pursue a better life.”
– We are enough
For those brave enough to acknowledge they are struggling alone, those vulnerable enough to share thire journey with others, we salute you.
