Helping Our Veterans in Crisis

Since 1949 the month of May has been known as “Mental Health Month” in an effort to shine a light on a very serious problem facing far too many. For the thousands of Iowans fighting this silent battle, this month is especially for them. The month of May is about sharing stories and making sure everyone fighting this battle knows they are not in this alone.

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE

A few days before Memorial Day, in cemeteries across the United States, a tradition takes place – one small American flag at a time. The final resting place of the men and women who served this great nation, a number of them who died in their service, all have a small American flag placed at their headstone. The flag is placed as a tribute to their service on the day all Americans set aside to remember their sacrifice.

FIXING THE VETERANS CRISIS LINE. NO EXCEPTIONS – NO EXCUSES. 

Late on a Saturday evening in the spring of 2016, one of our dedicated staff got a call from an Iowa veteran in need of assistance. He was having a bad day and had reached out to the Department of Veteran Administration’s (VA) Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) for help. The VCL failed him. His calls kept dropping or going to voicemail. I thank God he reached out to our staffer and she was there to answer the call.
