On Veteran’s Day it is time to remember those who have protected the citizens of this country. We pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and to those who return from service. Many veterans need additional services when they return home.

Mental health is an issue that has finally taken precedent. It is reported that 20 veterans commit suicide each day. Veterans are now encouraged more than ever to seek out mental health services as they now being covered for all members, not just those who have been in combat.

Honor those who have kept and continued to keep our freedoms independent by offering help or referring them to someone who can. Resources are available. If you need help or know someone who does, visit or call:
