Thanks you RRKC runners for helping me raise awareness of veteran suicide with 22 push-ups on Saturday. In 2013, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were committing suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some sources suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.
