An open letter to my Commander-in-Chief on Veterans Day


Make text smaller Make text larger





Dear Mr. President,

I write with a request. Please Tweet the names of every vet who commits suicide. Active duty military suicides, too.

The Veterans Administration says there are about 20 veteran suicides a day. Please Tweet those 20 names. Every day, Sir. Please.

Every vet believes there are more suicides than are counted. Maybe 30 a day, even 40. Every day is Veterans Day. Remind all Americans of that. Every day is Veterans Day.

Please give us their names so we may mourn them and bury them in our hearts with full honors.

Thank you.

Everett Cox
