If you are still wondering what you can do to help those in need, please consider devoting your time, treasure or talents to help reduce the suicide rate among our nation’s veterans.
The media has documented the limits of the Veterans Affairs medical system to meet the needs of our wounded and sick veterans. President-elect Donald Trump has made fixing the VA health care system a priority in his first 100 days.
