Few Americans realize that 22 veterans are lost everyday to suicide. These dramatic losses far exceed the current casualties in foreign conflicts.


Early Friday morning, 22 military veterans departed Landrum in the rain on a 22-mile walk to Greer to raise community awareness of the 22 veterans lost to suicide each day.

The first scheduled rest stop was Gowansville. They reached it ahead of schedule. The second rest stop on highway 14 was Skyland Elementary School where they were greeted by a group of supporters and encouragers from local veterans organizations. They provided water and restroom facilities for the walkers.

Tabatha R. Miller, Veterans Outreach Program Specialist represented the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the Skyland rest area. Auxiliary members of several veterans organizations as well as veterans not personally participating in the walk joined her.
