Operation Zero Although Veterans make up only 10 percent of the U.S. population, they account for nearly 1 in 5 of all suicides in America. The suicide rate for veterans is nearly double that of the civilian population, and every day 29 veterans attempt suicide with 20 of those veterans die. That amounts to one suicide every 65 minutes. However, the CDC claims the numbers are much higher. More than 69 percent of all veteran suicides were among those 50 and older. Mental health professionals say they are likely to be veterans who give up on life after their children are out of the house or a longtime marriage falls apart. The goal of Operation Zero is the have ZERO veterans attempt suicide, hence the name. FACTS: Suicide has become the leading cause of death in the U.S. military, exceeding accidents and even combat. Historically the suicide rate in the military has been below the civilian rate, but since the early 2000’s, the rate of suicides has risen dramatically. Take the Pledge ! “I will NEVER quit on my life and those of my fellow veterans.” Things to do in your communities: Gather other organizations to join you under this campaign, such as, IAVA, Project 22, the Veterans Administration, the branches of the military, the VFW, the American Legion, and as many others as you can think of. A good example is what the POW/MIA Organization did, following the Vietnam War, for Prisoners Of War and those Missing In Action. Speak up and help remove the misconceptions and stigmatism associated with PTSD. When someone suffering from PTSD can put shame aside they may reach out and ask for help instead of feeling there are no other options. Push for legislation with your local government and with those in DC. We are veterans who understand the military mindset and training. We are our Brother’s keeper. We are here for all veterans.
