Stopping the “mental health crisis” that leads to military veterans’ suicides was the goal of a workshop here Saturday that highlighted warning signs shown by such veterans.
“This is personal to me, as it is to most veterans. I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2010. Many of my buddies struggle with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and since our battalion’s return home, we have lost numerous soldiers to suicide. This effort here today is what we can do right here, right now to try to stop this. It must stop,” said Brian Willette, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3104 commander.
