The biggest age spikes are around 60 years old (our Vietnam era Veterans) and 18-25 (our recent Veterans).OUR MISSIONTo end Veteran suicide in our nation through our focus areas of education, research, resource provision, and community collaborations.OUR VISIONTo create a network of committed, trained, and recognized volunteer champions actively engaged in addressing the alarming concern of suicide deaths among Veterans. We will impact this concern and provide resources to Veterans, Families and Survivors through the main focus areas of the Alliance. #ShowUsYour22 - Turn 22 into Positive ActionWe encourage everyone to join our campaign 'Show Us Your 22'.
