My Fellow Sons, 

At this time of year, as our States are beginning the slow process of mass vaccination and reopening of our economies and thus allowing meetings to happen, I thought I might get out ahead of one question I know I will be getting somewhat frequently over the next 3 months.

With the Veteran’s suicide crisis at hand, I have chosen Warrior Battalion, a 501c3 charity, as my project. Their mission is to fight the battle against post-traumatic stress and support U.S. military service members and their families through healing programs to end Veteran suicide. Warrior Battalion has developed a national resource map where Veterans, their families and supporters can connect and help one another. Nationwide peer mentors are being trained and certified in suicide prevention with the focus on a network to be there in time to prevent Veteran suicide. Future retreat homes for military families for getaways are being developed to provide a serene location to offer outdoor activities targeted to reducing stress and building family bonds. For more information, please visit www.warriorbattalion.org. It is my hope that all of you will support this great project. One Veteran suicide is too many.

Paul R. Speigle – Commander
