Our veterans risk their lives daily, fighting overseas, but the struggles they face when they come back home can be just as treacherous.

According to a recent study conducted by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, nearly one and three vets have considered taking their own life.

It's an alarming epidemic, leaving many wondering, what can be done?

That is why a hotline, along with other tools are being provided to struggling vets and their falsies.

Many soldiers have to deal with joblessness, homelessness, and reintegrating into civilian society.

If you are a vet working through these issues, or no someone who is, go to this website http://www.veteranscrisisline.net/

Watching our government put it's arms around the military is like watching the neighborhood liar run up to the biggest kid on the street and start pointing at me.

Garrett: you gotta learn to proofread and spellcheck your articles better. Falsies, one and three, or no of someone who is.......Where did you go to college?
