DU need your help on G.I. suicides Bill
The Joshua Omvig Veterans Suicide Prevention Bill,H.R. 5771,Is currently before the U.S. House of Representives,mandates the estlishment screening and counseling referral programs for all returning veterans that will identify and track at-risk individuals,and provide more help for those with emotional or spirtual wounds.

As you know replugs have stopped every Bill that is for the returning troops because it will cut into their tax cuts. I need your help on this Bill. Can you please call your Representatives and tell them to support this Bill .(202)224-3121 the replugs do not want this Bill this year because it shows how they do not support veterans or the troops. THANKS GUYS AND GIRLS

3. In 50-some years we've come
from sending veterans to college to trying to stop them from killing themselves. A perfect metaphor for the history of the nation as whole.
