    Especially this:

    War casts a long, deep, shadow that affects generations.
    and the suicides get caught in the deepest darkest part of that war shadow and feel powerless to claw their way out.

    Just as it has taken the horror of 12/14 (Newtown) to shake this country enough to take action on gun control, I fear for what it will (finally) take for this country to wake up to the PTSD and subsequent suicide figures and demand action for our vets.

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy
