We have partnered with a wonderful Veteran’s organization, Active Heroes (activeheroes.org) to help battle Veteran suicide. An average of 20 Veterans a day commit suicide and this must end. Active Heroes is a national organization headquartered here in Louisville, Kentucky, just minutes from our offices. In 2012, the Department of Veterans Affairs’ study on veteran suicide concluded that 22 veterans a day take their own lives. Now a NEW report from 2014 shows the number reduced to 20 veterans a day thanks to national charities like Active Heroes.
Active Heroes is developing a retreat in Shepherdsville, Kentucky just south of Louisville where veterans can take part in activities such as hiking, horseback riding, archery, and more to help heal wounds that are invisible. We are proud to support our Nation’s Veterans and help continue the fight against Veteran suicide.
