Help a veteran

Dear Editor,

On average, 22 military veterans kill themselves everyday. I served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam era and suffered from depression and tried to commit suicide while homeless after my discharge in 1975. I did get help.

The VA has programs that can help, and there is also the Joseph P. Dwyer Peer Support Project that lets veterans get counseling in s small group setting to manage post-traumatic stress disorder.

If you know a veteran in that situation, help them take the first step. You will be glad that you did.
