Over one million men and women have paid the ultimate price for our country since the revolutionary war. These sacrifices are not a thing of the past, but are ongoing. There are still 13,000 U.S. troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan. 6,840 U.S. service members have died in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. On this Memorial Day, please take a moment to read about at least one of those sacrifices by clicking here.
Those fortunate enough to return home still face much suffering in the form of severe physical and emotional wounds. According to the U.S. Veterans Administration, 22 veterans in the United States commit suicide every day. That is 154 every week or 8,030 every year. Please consider supporting organizations like Wounded Warrior Project or Welding for Warriors.
