The rate of Veteran suicide is more than double that of our non-Veteran population. So many of them that never connect with the needed emotional support during the long recovery and adjustment to life after combat. By supporting the Thompson family's "High Points for AHERO", you will directly increase the number of service members and Veterans that we provide services to.
