Veteran Suicide Should Be Unheard Of
Our nation’s past and present warfighters and peacekeepers should get so much support that they never lose hope.
There are ways you can give hope and give help that may save a life.
We believe veteran suicide can be prevented if veterans get what they need, when they need it. We would like to help you provide hope and help in any of these ways:
- Helping veterans and their loved ones to find and use the resources they need
- Helping you help people you know who may be thinking of suicide
- Helping you find what you need if you recently lost somebody to suicide
- Letting you know how you can help to get the word out that there is a problem and that there is also hope
- Helping citizens learn what government could do to help

Several years ago, three Michigan combat veterans discovered they had something in common: A battle buddy or veteran family member committed suicide. They became aware of the Department of Veterans Administration (VA) study that estimated that on average 22 veterans commit suicide every day. They decided to put up 22 crosses a day, every day for one month. Their hope was that the visual impact of seeing the field of crosses growing relentlessly for a long period of time would impact the people who drive by the crosses every day.
