Hello fellow veterans! Maranda Boggs here and I am a Veteran Coach with VA Claims Insider. Today I wanted to tough topic to talk about and that is veteran suicide. Based on the statistics, roughly 22 veterans a day commit suicide. That number is too high and we all need to do our part to combat this pandemic. If you are having thoughts of suicide please reach out to a friend, family member or the suicide hotline for help. Your Life Matters!

***Veteran Suicide, breaking down the wall! {Your Life Matters}*** For some Veterans in crisis, the only way they know how to deal with their issues is to avoid their issues. Many Veterans believe they are strong enough to get past the worst of times on their own. As we know from many scientific studies and through anecdotal evidence, it doesn’t work out very often. When it doesn’t work out, the Veterans in crisis who go without support commonly wind up as a statistic. Suicide is a major problem for the Veteran community and for all Veterans in crisis. What’s worse is, in the past decade, the number of suicides among the Veteran community has passed the number of deaths attributed to the Vietnam war. Research has revealed the Veterans with the highest rate of suicide are middle aged males. This means most Veteran suicides are happening years after a service member is given their DD-214. Support is required throughout a person’s life, but a Veteran in crisis can be years removed from service when the crisis occurs.
