Image if 22 soldiers were killed in battle today. That would be news worth knowing. What happened? Why did so many die at once? Was it a bomb? An ambush? Now image if that happened every day. In the United States alone 22 veterans commit suicide daily.... I couldn't believe those stats when I heard them. PTSD and mental health issues are obviously a major problem among veterans. I'm very familiar with this issue among emergency responders but know little about mental health among military personnel, what's being done to help these men and women?
