After brief consideration, we have added First Responders to our system. First responders include paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and other trained members of organizations connected with this type of work.
In September 2019 an article was posted pointing out Police Officers are at the highest risk of suicide of all professions. You can read the full article here. As one of our members pointed out, police officers see violence every day. For the veteran, the battlefield is not their home. For the police officer, the battlefield is their home. This is also true for most first responders.
Many veterans also find themselves in law enforcement and other first responder jobs once they separate from the military. Our goal is to eventually alleviate the suffering of all people, starting with those who serve and served.
Welcome to all our friends who serve this great nation and their local communities.
