Byron, Ryan, and Robert discuss the concerns they all share on the alarming number of veteran suicides, especially within the last twelve months. Veteran suicide continues to climb despite the best efforts by the veterans administration or the thousands of nonprofits focused on post traumatic stress, military sexual trauma, and suicide prevention. 

More troops have died by suicide from 2005-2017 than the total number of US troops who died in 30 years of war in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. The suicide hotline number is 1-800-273-8255.
