If you check out my previous post you will see that in 2012 the soldier suicide count was 349 and the veteran suicide rate was approximately 22 a day. So despite leaders best efforts, suicides have actually gone up. This is because they are addressing the symptoms, not the root causes which I identify in my book. If you have any connections in the publishing industry please pass this along. I need your help getting this out. Together we can make a difference. For a limited time only you can email me at email@example.com for your free copy of "Dark Side of the Army." Thank you.

I wanted to give a big Thank-You to the Weaver family for their considerable donation to an organization in critical need! There is a severe shortage of good, generous, and caring people in this country, and even more tragic is the lack of care and concern for those who literally place their lives on the line and give themselves completely for this country. In Jacksonville Florida though, this could not be further from the truth, not with the Weaver family, Home Depot, and 5-Star Veteran Center teaming up to provide critical help to veterans in need. Thanks to Home Depot, renovations and remodeling are still underway and the veteran center is improving in numerous ways. Unfortunately due to the recent scandal involving 5-Star's former sponsors Weaver's donation will do little more than help play catch up and provide a little breathing room. Hopefully with recent media attention more donors can be found to keep such a crucial nonprofit operating. While I'm at it I want to give a personal thank-you to 5-Star because they have been providing a room and other services for me for six months now helping me get on my feet. Words cannot express the gratitude and importance of their service. I hope you will support. God bless!
