Our Troops Sacrifice Their Lives at War, but also at Home? 22 Veterans commit suicide each and every day and we need to reduce those numbers. BusiNeighbor Inc. believes a more holistic approach can be integrated with the veterans’ traditional medical treatment. That is the reason a group of vets and concerned citizens have committed to building the BusiNeighbor Veterans Center, located in the heart of Stone Mountain, Georgia. With the location and architectural design completed, we need your help to launch this project.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A bill aimed at reducing a suicide epidemic among military veterans is on its way to the president for his signature. Huffington Post - MATTHEW DALY - The Senate unanimously approved a bill Tuesday named for Clay Hunt, a 26-year-old Iraq and Afghanistan veteran who killed himself in 2011. The bill comes in response to suicides that on average claim the lives of 22 military veterans every day. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said President Barack Obama strongly supports the bill and will sign it.
